The first thing to think about is what kind of support you need. While a need for help with meals or personal care activities such as washing, bathing and dressing can often be obvious, sometimes things like companionship and assistance in pursuing hobbies and interests can be just as important for wellbeing and quality of life. It might be useful to write a list of both absolute necessities and wish list activities to help get a feel for how much support you might actually need.

Whatever support needs you identify, quality of delivery should always be key. It is important to check that support plans are developed to meet your individual needs and that you are matched with a support worker who is professional, compassionate and a good match for you socially and culturally. The organisation providing support should also be able to explain the processes and training they have in place to ensure your safety and security.
