Home care


Home care can help people who need care and support at home. 

It can help with personal care needs like:

  • getting up and going to bed
  • washing and bathing 
  • other tasks like taking medication, which might also be supported with some assistive technology equipment

If you need domestic support, we will help you to look at which options are available to support your needs.

Home care is provided by an agency. This is different to a personal assistant who is employed directly through you.

Request support for yourself, a friend or relative

Our team of trained advisers is here to help guide you to the right support to help you stay independent.

This could include connecting you to facilities and resources that are available in your community, finding care support services that you can arrange yourself, or getting care support from the Council if you are eligible. Email the team at LetsTalk@southtyneside.gov.uk or call 0191 424 6000.
