Staying independent is the best way to stay healthy whether you have care needs, a disability, or you need support into older age.

Most people prefer to stay in their own home and with access to local services, home adaptations and extra help, this is often possible.

Our directory of local services, My Life Warrington, provides a wide range of information about services that are set up to support you to live at home, such as: 

  • Help with washing, dressing and toileting needs (personal care)
  • Help with cooking, cleaning, shopping, laundry and other household tasks
  • Gardening and handyperson services
  • Daytime and social activities
  • Equipment, adaptations and technology to make living at home easier

Our Warrington Wellbeing Service can also provide one-to-one information and advice to help you to manage your own health and wellbeing.

Social care assessment and eligibility 

Many people arrange and pay for their own services. However, you may be eligible for help with arranging and funding your care and support.
We can usually only look at helping to fund your care when you have assets less than £23,250. You may still need to contribute towards the cost of your care and support, but may not have to pay for all of it.

Find out how much you may have to pay

Our calculator can help you to find out how much you may need to pay towards your care based on your income, savings and expenses.

Request an assessment

To request a needs assessment, you can contact the One Front Door team on 01925 443322 (option 1 followed by option 2) or send us a message at We aim to reply to all emails within two working days.
