Everyone should have the chance to live independently and safely in Portsmouth.
As much as possible, we want people to be able to stay in their own homes. But there may come a time where you want to consider moving into a care home or supported housing, if:
- you are finding daily tasks an increasing struggle, such as cooking, cleaning, washing, dressing, taking your medication etc.
- there are concerns for your safety if you continue to live in your current home
- you’ve had a care needs assessment and a care home has been recommended
This page has information about care homes in Portsmouth. You may also wish to consider sheltered housing or extra care, which offer you the chance to live independently in your own flat but with assistance with daily tasks.
