Linking residents and their care homes to services in the local community of Croydon. We aim to enable you to become more connected, less isolated and more informed.

How can the Care Home Connector Service help?

The Care Home Connector Service is a partnership between Asian Resource Centre Croydon and Age UK Croydon. It provides a valuable link between care homes, residents and their families with the support and services which are available in the local community. This could be with health and social care services or community and voluntary sector groups. We aim to ensure good communication between all those involved in your care, follow up on actions and provide information on support or activities which are available in the local area.

At the initial assessment, we will find out what is important to you, establish your goals and create an action plan. With your agreement, we can also make onward referrals or signpost to other organisations who may also be able to support you.

Our service strives to deliver:

Person-centred care: Your specific needs and what is important to you are at the centre of our work.

Holistic care: Support will cover different aspects of your life and your particular needs.

Co-ordinated care: We collaborate with those involved in your care and services or activities that you may need.

Access and opportunity: We can provide you with information to help you access the services within the borough
