Powys Home Support - Helping you to live life your way
Home Support aims to provide support and practical assistance an individual may need in their day-to-day life to stay living at home, safely and independently.
The home support service is open to any person in later life who feels that they would benefit from a little extra help to enable them to live life the way they want to.
The service provides early support (including 24/7 cover for emergencies through community alarms) to assist members and their families to remain at home, maintaining and maximising their independence and health and wellbeing; retaining their links with the community; and to contribute towards preventing and/or delaying the development of needs for care and support and reducing isolation and loneliness.
The Home Support project is based on an existing service operating in Rhayader, called Rhayader Home Support and will be developed in Llandrindod Wells to provide 24/7 cover for emergencies through community alarms (Careline) for those living in sheltered housing/receiving warden based services; in Llanidloes Town Centre and in Knighton and Presteigne area.
