How A Care Adviser Can Help You

Help select the most appropriate type of care

A Care Adviser will be able to listen to your situation, explain all of the various care options that exist, including care at home, close care, sheltered accommodation, care homes and care homes with nursing, advise on the advantages and disadvantages of each with specific reference to your situation, discuss each option fully and help you to come to a decision about what is the best type of care for your needs and wishes.

Find a Care Provider

In any given area of the UK, there are many, many care homes and care agencies. Finding the one that suits your care needs, social needs and budget, with the facilities you want, in the right area and with current vacancies requires an enormous commitment of time and effort. Many people simply cannot devote the necessary time to this search, either because they are elderly themselves or because they are the working sons or daughters of elderly parents.

A Care Adviser will carry out all of this research for you, reviewing all of the homes or agencies in your selected area, discarding those that are inappropriate and providing you with a shortlist of maybe four or five care providers that meet your care needs and are as ideal as possible for you. You will then simply visit and choose between these homes or agencies, secure in the knowledge that they are the best for your situation.

Provide advice on hospital and Social Services procedures and communications

The Care Adviser will be able to advise you how Social Services work, the procedures they go through and how you can get the most from your Social Services department. The Care Adviser will also be able to advise you with regard to any disputes you may have with Social Services or your Local Authority.

The Care Adviser will also be able to talk you through hospital discharge procedures and guide you through the procedures that you will have to go through when moving from hospital to a care home or care at home.

Provide Family Mediation

The Care Adviser can mediate between disagreeing family members, providing an independent viewpoint and helping families come to an agreement. This is especially relevant in situations where children feel an ageing parent needs care but the parent is very independent and pushes the issue away. The Care Adviser can present the facts independently to the parent, break down the barriers and help the family come to an agreed decision.

Carry out work while you are Overseas

In the situation where a son or daughter lives overseas and a parent or dependent relative in the UK needs care, the Care Adviser can take a greater role in liaising between parent and offspring and finding the best care for the parent. The offspring will still be fully involved in the care decision, but will be able to be so from a distance, saving the need for frequent, expensive and time-consuming flights to the UK.
