If you are caring for a partner or child, it’s a 24/7 job, so finding the time to look at what help and support is available to you, whether its practical or financial, is difficult. On top of that, there is the time it takes to fill in forms and prepare for assessments.
If you have a parent who needs help, you may be finding it difficult to offer help regularly. This could be due to work, family commitments, or perhaps because you live too far away. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be to help care for a parent from a distance.
I can help to free up your time, so that you can spend more quality time with your partner, child or parent, rather than filling in forms, preparing for assessments and other bureaucracy.
I can act as the link between the health and/or social care professionals and you, to make sure the person who needs the care gets the support they need.
This is the kind of help that people should be getting but may not be. Some of the help may be offered through the NHS, local council or charities but some things may not. In a lot of circumstances the help may be available but only if you ask for it.
More information on the services I offer can be found by clicking on the links below. If the subject you need advice on is not covered on my website, please contact me anyway. If I can help I will, if not I may be able to point you towards someone that can help you.
If you want to remain living independently at home but are finding this increasingly difficult, there are options available to you.
If you don’t know where to start when it comes to accessing and funding social care, I can help.
Choosing to move a loved one into a residential/nursing home is a difficult decision to make for anyone, so if you’re not sure where to start I can help.
