Finding care made easier in Gloucestershire

Looking for care or support for yourself or a family member? The latest Gloucestershire Care & Support Services Directory is now available.

The directory contains full, up-to-date listings of organisations in the county providing residential care and care in your own home.

It is packed with useful help and advice on all of the care options – for older people and people with disabilities. There is also guidance on paying for care and what financial assistance may be available.

Cllr Andrew Gravells, cabinet member for older people, said: “Taking the decision to move into residential care or have some extra support at home isn’t always easy. That’s why we work with Care Choices to produce this directory which has comprehensive listings on all the care available in Gloucestershire. Having the information readily available in one place means making a difficult decision is that little bit easier.”

Robert Chamberlain, publisher of Care Choices directories, said: “When choosing care you should be armed with the most up-to-date information to help decide which kind of care is most suitable, who will provide it and how it is to be funded. The Care Services Directory is an invaluable source of information for anyone considering long-term care.”

To receive a free copy of the Gloucestershire Care & Support Services Directory, call the Adult Helpdesk on 01452 426868.

If you want to speak to someone about care options, funding, accessing services or any other care-related issues, the directory has a free helpline on 0800 3892 077. Staff can give you more information, talk to you about any issues and provide you with a shortlist of care homes in the right area which meet your needs.

The directory is published by Care Choices Ltd and is available free of charge to members of the public. It is distributed by Gloucestershire County Council.
