ISWP can advise and help you with planning and organising care and support to enable you to continue to live independently at home.

This support can include assistance with your personal care, your meals, shopping, overnight care, taking you out in a car or taxi, in fact, anything which you feel will help you to maintain your independence and your quality of life. Services are available in emergencies when, for example, you may be unwell, on both a short or long term basis or if you are being discharged from hospital. These services can also help your relatives to continue to care for you at home and can be used as an opportunity to give them respite with your care.

We will be able to advise you about all services and funding opportunities which are available to help you to live independently at home. We work closely with Health and Statutory Services to ensure that you are able to access all the services to which you are entitled. We will also be able to liaise directly with other professional colleagues, including Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Specialist Nurses.

We will assist you to develop a personal care and support plan which will detail your needs and wishes. We are able to assist you to review and monitor the care which you receive
