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.

At Chosen with Care we want to inform families, before there is a crisis, about the issues that need to be considered when you are looking for a care home. At a recent care event that we organised, we talked about everything to do with care. At the event we spoke to a lovely couple and received this testimonial -
'My Mum spoke to me for quite a while on Sunday, to say how impressed she had been and how glad they were they had gone along. Both my Nanna and Grandma had dementia before they died and my Uncle has it now. They did not know about the affect small strokes have on developing Dementia and following the advice they received, my Dad is going to attend his doctors and demand an MRI scan, as he had a stroke about a year ago.
Thank you from myself as well, this has been really helpfully for my parents.' Jonathan H.
