Few things make you feel more vulnerable than realising, at crisis point, that you don't know who to turn to, what questions to ask, or what actions to take next.
All too often, facing the fact that a much-loved parent, grand-parent, husband or wife, needs a care home only happens when an unexpected accident has left them unable to cope. You find your relative in hospital and then suddenly the NHS is relying on you to find a solution about where mum should convalesce - quickly.
Often you can be pressurised to find somewhere, rather than 'bed blocking' in hospital.
It can be daunting to the point of being overwhelming. But there is help, support and understanding nearby. We offer a personalised service that can help you find the right place. By working with you to find the ideal care home solution, whether for respite care or a long-term placement we will make sure you don't make a mistake when you are under pressure.

My wife Doreen is disabled and has Alzheimer's. If that were not enough, she recently fell and broke her arm! At that moment my life changed, as I was no longer able to continue caring for her.
A friend suggested that I talk to Debbie. We arranged a meeting at which she advised that I should have a plan for the future; we first agreed that the plan should be to get Doreen back home. Debbie recommend that I get Doreen out of hospital as soon as possible and into a care home for respite, advising me what to look for when selecting the home (vital). We further went into any requirements our own home might need to enable Doreen's safe return. Once home, Home Care will be needed, and Debbie again had all the contacts to provide this to meet my needs.
I will not go into other offerings on her menu - needless to say she has all the answers and was able to lift the burden from my shoulders at a very stressful time. A very big thank you Debbie as our plan is beginning to take shape.
