“Two thirds of people never consider old age care”
The Daily Telegraph
After 30 years spent within adult health and social care, as a practitioner through to working at senior management level, I was motivated to set up my practice after the considerable strain our Local Authority adult social care services are under, even before the Covid pandemic. I felt the frustration from those trying to FindGoodCare and the efforts in trying to prevent the need for care from escalating, only really getting the help in an emergency or when it’s too late, and as a result the right decisions not always being made in the process.
The only way to realistically achieve a bespoke and personalised service is by getting an experienced professional with integrity to get to know the person over time, and to get to know someone takes time. From my knowledge and experience I have been able to put together a comprehensive care practice for those who want to be enabled to make the right decisions about their care at the moment it is needed, without delay.
