As we get older, or have problems with our health or mobility, then living independently and safely staying in our own home can become increasingly challenging.
Find out what support is available to help you live independently in your own home through the Your Life Doncaster website, how to apply for a Blue Badge, find a care home, apply for home alarms & telecare services and more.
Our home alarm service and Telecare service helps elderly and vulnerable adults live safely in their own home.
For most people, remaining independent and being able to stay in their own home for as long as possible is really important. To help people achieve this, care and support at home is available for those who require additional support with household tasks, personal care or any other activity that allows them to maintain their independence and quality of life.
Doncaster Adult Contact Team (ACT) is made up of first line officers who can assist and advise you if you need help with your support and care arrangements.
Fairer Charging Policy
Care homes provide support, care and accommodation for elderly people unable to live independently.
Extra care housing provides 24-hour support for older people who want to remain independent or can no longer live in their own homes.
Having a break is likely to help you cope with caring and give you time to recharge your batteries.
Advocacy is a way of protecting and asserting our rights. If someone speaks on your behalf, they are commonly known as an advocate.
