Keeping independent

Keeping independent

Your care plan should include details about how you can help yourself to stay independent. This might involve daily activities, taking up new skills and doing some light exercise. You should always be encouraged to do things at your own pace and to do things that you enjoy.

You should receive support to help you continue living in your own home. This may include making sure that you have equipment in your home to help you get around and look after yourself. Other things that can help include electronic memory aids and diaries.
