Care Services for Adults
We provide social care services for adults with a range of complex needs and disabilities.
West Lothian Council provides social care services for adults with a range of complex needs and disabilities.
We also work in partnership with the NHS and the independent care sector to ensure 'seamless' health and social care and a real choice of service options.
For more detailed information, please see the 'Care Services for Adults' document [520kb].
We have information about how we assess your needs, information about residential and nursing homes within the West Lothian area, how to access respite care and the range of services which we can arrange to care for you within your own home.
We offer a range of services for people with disabilities.
We can provide help and support on a range of health related topics.
If you have a learning disability, our teams support people to maximise their opportunities for positive experiences and aim to break down barriers which adults with a learning disability may experience.
We offer a range of social work services. We can help to get you in touch with advocacy services, describe our out of hours, emergency support arrangements, introduce you to Direct Payments (a system which allows you to organise and buy your own care and support) providing you with greater control about how your needs are met. Additionally, we can suggest leisure and social activities to promote social inclusion.
