Personal Assistants

Social Care for adults is changing. Under the new national system of social care, you can get social care and support in a range of ways. You have the freedom to control the type of assistance you receive, and who you receive it from.

To make the most of this opportunity, you may choose to employ a Personal Assistant who can provide the exact care and support that you need when you need it, whether you are using funding from Social Services or paying privately.

What is a Personal Assistant?
A personal assistant can provide the exact care and support that you need when you need it so that you can continue to live independently in your own home or be supported out in the community, whether you are using funding from Derby City Council or paying privately.

There are many benefits to employing a personal assistant…

  • They work for you.
  • You decide what you want them to do.
  • You decide when you want them to work.

When you employ a personal assistant, this means you become an employer. This can sound daunting as there are lots of things to think about.

The good news is that Apasen can advise and support in many ways !
