Support for older people

Disabled Facilities Grant

We help older people by putting them in touch with relevant services that can help them to remain safe and happy in their home. If someone is struggling to manage in their home due to health complications or disability, we offer a Disabled Facilities Grant for items such as level access showers and ramps.

The Wellbeing Service

We also work closely with public and voluntary services to help people stay safe and well in their home. The Wellbeing Service is designed to promote confidence in living independently and is overseen by Lincs Independent Living Partnership which is a consortium of providers bringing together a wide range of experience and skills.

Care Homes and Sheltered and Supported Housing

Maybe you need a little extra support to enable you to live at home independently, or perhaps the time has come to consider moving into a care home or sheltered and supported housing.

Lincolnshire Community Assistance Scheme (LCAS)

Lincolnshire County Council is running a scheme to help people going through unexpected difficulties and who need urgent assistance.

Heating and energy advice

Schemes like Responders to Warmth and Winter Fuel Payment provide energy efficiency measures to help an older person keep their home warm.

The government has decided to stop funding the Green Deal Finance Company (GDFC). The GDFC was set up to lend money to Green Deal providers. Find out how this affects you.
