About Trafford Council
Who gets a care package?
People over the age of 18, who live in Trafford and who need practical help due to sight or hearing loss, physical or learning disabilities, frailty or illness. Help is also available to people recovering from a hospital stay and needing temporary help to maintain their independence and quality of life. However, in order to work out just how much help is needed to make life easier for you, we do need to carry out an assessment.
After the assessment we will identify and agree your needs with you and discuss the help and support available to meet them, according to the seriousness of your situation.
If you don't qualify for a care package from Adult Social Care you could arrange to employ a care worker privately through a private home care agency but remember to take care to choose one that is registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Follow the link below for more information or visit the CQC website.
How much does it cost?
There may be some cost but the actual amount you pay will depend on what services you receive.
Can I get help with the cost?
It is possible. We will help you fill out a financial assessment form to see if you qualify for financial help. To get a rough idea of costs you can carry out a quick, confidential financial self assessment online.
We may provide or arrange services for you but there are other ways of getting the support you need. You can choose to have a Personal Budget and use the money that you receive from us to arrange your own support.
What if my situation changes?
If you have had an assessment and you feel your situation has changed you can ask for a review.
The Dignity in Care Campaign
"It's a basic human right for people using care services to be treated with dignity and respect. "
The Dignity in Care Campaign was launched nationally in 2006 to put dignity and respect at the heart of care services.
