Adult social care

Blue arrow The Care Act 2015 - From Wednesday 1 April 2015 the Care Act became law and this has led to a number of changes in the way adult social care is delivered.
Blue arrow Adult social care and how it can help you - Adult social care covers the wide range of services that we can offer people age 18 and over who have social care needs.
Blue arrow Adult abuse - If you know a person that you believe is at risk of abuse or is being abused, it is very important to let us or the police know.
Blue arrow Connect to Support - This is a useful resource to help you find out what is available in your local area, from residential and homecare services to free community based activities.
Blue arrow Disabilities - If you have a disability, find out what support we can offer you, including equipment and adaptations, disabled public toilets, grants and funding, and options for getting out and about.
Blue arrow Extra care housing - If you are over 18 and want to live independently for as long as possible an extra care apartment provides an alternative to residential care or supported housing for people wanting their own front door.
Blue arrow Financial support to pay towards your care - Unlike NHS care, adult social care is not free. We may be able to help pay for your care but most people need to contribute towards that cost and some people need to pay the full cost. If you are eligible for support we carry out a financial assessment to work out what your contribution is and we pay the rest of the cost. Our contribution and your contribution are added together to make up your personal budget. You can take this as a cash payment to buy support yourself, ask us to use it to arrange support or a combination of both.
Blue arrow Getting out and about - There are a range of transport options available to you to get out and about, including the blue badge parking scheme, travel concessions, community transport, wheelchairs, and car leasing options.
Blue arrow Getting support from us - If you are over 18, live in Hull and feel you may need support, a social care assessment is often the first step to getting the help and support you need.
Blue arrow Leisure and social activities - Find out about social and leisure activities for older or disabled people in Hull, including adult education courses, library services, allotments and leisure centre concessions.
Blue arrow Residential care - Most people prefer to live in their own home and we help you to do this for as long as possible. Even with the best of support though, some people do eventually need to move into a residential care home, and if this is something you are considering, getting the right care home on the right financial terms is one of the most important decisions you can make at this time.
Blue arrow Support for carers - The Care Act introduces a new right to support for carers. As well as involving you as a carer in the planning of support for the person you care for, we will make sure you can access the information and advice you need and offer you an assessment of your needs. You may be eligible for support in your own right if your caring role is having a significant impact on your life.
Blue arrow Support to stay at home - We want to help you live independently and safely in your own home. We offer a variety of services to help you live independently, including personal alarms (Telecare), housing options, equipment and adaptations, meals on wheels, and funding to help pay towards your care support.
