Home care services

You can apply for home care to get help in your everyday tasks and maintain your independence.

You can only apply for home care if you live in your own home and require help or support in your everyday life or personal care. Home care services include practical help, food delivery, home nursing and temporary residential care. 

When you apply for home care services, a health visitor will come to your home and assess your overall need for support. For example, your health visitor will find out what you are able to do for yourself and the specific type of help you need.  


Home care is free of charge. However, there are fees for services such as delivery of food, laundry and general household items as well as for food during temporary stays in residential institutions.
