Home care

This service provides care to your child in your home. To access this service, your child will need a continuing health care assessment and have allocated care hours based on your child’s nursing needs to help you at home.

The continuing care assessment is done by NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Integrated Care Board.

Your children’s community nurse, paediatrician or social worker can make a referral for you to have an assessment.

The number of hours received will depend on the needs of your child and your family.

Home care is one of many different providers of this service.

The policies for our home care service can be found in our document library.
