Care package

A care plan

A care package is a combination of services put together to meet a person's assessed needs as part of the care plan arising from an assessment or a review.  It defines exactly what that person needs in the way of care, services or equipment to live their life in a dignified and comfortable manner.

Some of the services included in a Care Package might be:

  • Help with things like cleaning and shopping.
  • Disability equipment and adaptations to the home.
  • Daily assistence with personal care and cooking.
  • Day centres to give the person or the person who cares for them a rest from care.
  • Day care for the person to give them social interaction.
  • Admitance to a care or nursing home.
