Supporting Adults at Home

We assess a person's needs to decide if we can offer care and support. We have to give priority to people who are at most risk.

We use eligibility criteria. These let us work out how serious the risk is of you losing your independence if your needs are not met.

We will discuss what support you need if your safety and independence are at high risk. For example, you may be unable to carry out essential personal care tasks, such as bathing and dressing.

Where the risk is lower, we will give you information and advice. This will be the case if you are having some difficulties but can manage most aspects of daily living.

We may need to meet with you to discuss your needs.

To arrange for an assessment then contact our Adult Social Care Enquiry Team (ASCET) via email: adultsocialcare@westlothian.gov.uk or telephone 01506 284848
