Care and support

Care and support

ILS promotes good health and social well-being, as well as helping people to feel safe and secure. Services include:

  • homecare, such as help with cleaning, laundry and shopping
  • personal care, including support with food preparation, bathing and help with dressing
  • emotional and practical advice, for example support to manage finances
  • accompanying tenants to appointments and supporting them to take part in social activity.

Services are provided as part of a personalised care plan, delivered in the tenant's own home and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

ILS is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide personal care and as such is subject to regulatory inspections. Details of the most recent inspection reports can be found by clicking on the CQC website link on this page.

Our services are relationship-centred, which means they focus on the importance of positive relationships between older people, relatives and staff. We take time to find out what is important to each individual, so that we can provide them with services that best meet their needs.
