Who can provide care to me in my own home?

Care in your own home may involve personal and domestic care tasks such as light housework, doing the shopping, laundry, washing, helping you get up, bathing, dressing yourself and help administering medication. Care can be delivered over a short period (e.g. if your Carer is away) or as part of an on-going care package.

For information on providers of personal domiciliary care here for a link to St Helens Council website.
