Support in your home
We have a number of schemes to support to you in your home.
The Live Well Service
The Live Well Service is a bespoke intensive housing management service which we offer in-house, as an extra form of assistance for any of our customers who need it. Its purpose is to offer additional advice, assistance, and help so our customers can stay ‘living well’ in their homes – whatever this might mean for them. By signing up to access the service, you will receive regular contact, either face-to-face or over the phone, from your very own dedicated personal advisor who you can also contact directly with any enquiries you may have, without needing to go via our Contact Centre.
Disability Living Service
The Disability Living Service assists customers who have an assessed medical need. We work in partnership with health professionals, including the Community Occupational Therapy team, to advise customers and to make best use of suitable housing.
Specialist Disability Living Advisors work with you to explore your options to live independently in a home suited to your needs. This includes:
- Some minor adaptations that can help you to get around your home, for example, grab rails. These will be agreed quickly and the work carried out by us
- Rehousing to more suitable accommodation. In most cases where your current home is unsuitable for you to live in independently we will provide support to move.
We and other social landlords have a large stock of adapted properties including wheelchair adapted homes across Oldham.
We will start by talking to you, either by phone or a home visit, so we know what you need and want.
If you need a piece of equipment like a bath chair, please visit Oldham Council's website.
If you want to know more about the service, please get in touch.
