The range of care services for elderly people living in their own homes is extensive, and will depend on the needs of individual older people. Care services include those which provide domiciliary personal care, and this is practical help with personal daily tasks such as dressing or bathing. Other specialist care services include those for people with dementia, services provided by opticians or chiropodists, nursing care provided by qualified nurses, as well as telecare, telehealth, respite care, practical assistance for elderly people after hospital admission, and services that support unpaid carers of elderly people to have a break.
