Getting help to stay at home

I recently spoke to a member who had some simple improvements done at home which made it much easier for her husband to cope. Most obviously this was a wide step and a sturdy handrail at the front door.

She had “got the ball rolling” by calling Adult Social Services and that call led to a visit from an occupational therapist within a few days (and this was during the lockdown). She recommended some improvements which were completed promptly. It also led to some visits by a physiotherapist. So , just one phone call reaped rewards!

This was in Hampshire and the contacts are adult.services@hants.gov.uk Telephone : 0300 555 1390

I don’t have any information about how good the equivalent service is in Surrey. The contact details are as follows : contactcentre.adults@surreycc.gov.uk or call 0300 200 1005
