Our advice pages are a good place to start if you think you may need to go into a care home. We have information on how to find a care home; how to seek assistance from your local authority and how the charging procedures work for care in a care home.
If you look after a partner, relative or friend who is disabled or ill due to physical or mental health, you are a carer, even if you don’t think of yourself as one. Find out about the emotional, practical and financial support available to you.
We have a detailed factsheet which covers what to do if you are an older person who is being abused or neglected, or may be at risk of this; or you are concerned on an older person’s behalf that they are being abused. The information in the factsheet aims to raise awareness and understanding of the issue of abuse; provide details on approaches to safeguarding – including relevant legislation, statutory guidance and policies – together with practical steps that can be taken to stop abuse. It also outlines help and support that may be available to report abuse.
