If you or a loved one needs help at home with day-to-day living, you can arrange this by:
- contacting a private care agency of your choice
- calling the Adult Social Care helpdesk on 023 9268 0810
If you decide on Adult Social Care, you'll need to be assessed so we can see what type of care would help you. Anyone can ask for an assessment. There's more information on our 'Getting an assessment' page.
If we agree that you need support at home, we'll help you to get the support you need. This may be from care agencies, voluntary organisations or other services in Portsmouth.
Whether you have to pay for your care depends on your finances and savings. Read the 'Paying for care' page for more information.
If your situation changes, you can ask for a review of your care by calling the helpdesk. You can also call the helpdesk to cancel or reduce your care if you wish.
