Glasgow resident Jane Ewing is one of thousands of older people to benefit from the Scottish Government's free personal care for the elderly.
The 70-year-old is able to live in her warden-controlled flat, thanks to the care she receives seven days a week.
Here, she explains how important her home helps are to her life.
The home help comes in the morning, gets me dressed and makes my breakfast.
Jane Ewing, 70, has home help seven days a week
They do my washing and they put cream on me.
I have got carers coming in seven days a week.
After breakfast they go and then come back to do my lunch.
They then come back later when I have my tea and they get me ready for bed. They do a lot for me.
Their help makes a lot of difference to me.
I like being in my flat with my home helps. I really enjoy my flat which has a warden who is here until 9pm.
I am on the third floor and couldn't manage on my own without the care that I get.
But I am able to stay in my own flat, I do have a wheelchair and I can get about with the help of my Zimmer.
I like all the help I get and I think it is money well spent - it is really good.
I love my home helps, Maureen, Terri and Margaret. They are really good with me.
I couldn't manage without them.
