How is a home care provider different to a personal assistant?
A home care provider is an agency where as a personal assistant is employed directly through you. Find out more about personal assistants.
What help can the Council provide?
The Council's Let's Talk team will help you to find support to maximise your independence and achieve the things that matter to you.
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 accessing care support from the Council if eligible.
Contact the Let's Talk team on 0191 424 6000 or by email at LetsTalk@southtyneside.gov.uk.
If you would like to speak to someone face-to-face we can offer appointments in a community base such as The Word and Hebburn Central.
