About social care support for adults in Manchester

You may need social care support after a fall or accident, while recovering from an operation, the onset of illness, disability or impairment, or a significant change in your life.

Our aim is to help you live as healthily and independently as possible without the need for ongoing support. We'll talk to you about your situation and ask questions to help us understand your needs. Where possible we'll use short-term support known as Re-ablement and equipment such as grab rails or personal alarm pendants to help you recover your independence.

Re-ablement lasts up to six weeks but may not be suitable for everyone. For those people whose needs are greater we'll carry out a further assessment of your social care needs.
