Information for Care at Home Service Users
Let us know
If you need to cancel or change your home care visit – perhaps because you have an appointment or are going to be away from home – don’t forget to tell us.
We also need to know if your home carer has not arrived as expected.
The number to call is 01343 563311.
This will put you through to one of our five on duty care allocators who make arrangements for any changes, including cover for carers if they are unwell or on holiday.
Before 8.45am, after 5pm and at weekends you need to call the out of hours number – 03457 565656.
