Case study

Mr Ford's mother has developed dementia and is finding it very difficult to manage living on her own. Mr Ford has been caring for her when he is not at work but has found this increasingly hard.
 
Our advisor was able to go through all the options available for help and care with Mr Ford and his mother, and help them make an informed choice as to what the next step would be.

Outreach service

We offer a home visiting service for older people who are unable to come into our offices, providing advice and information in their own homes.

During the last year we have dealt with 1665 enquiries from people.
