Covid-19 has meant that family members have been unable to visit older relatives, causing stress and anxiety and leading to gaps in informal care provision.
You may be worried that a relative of yours may feel isolated or be at risk of harm or self-neglect?
With no-one able to drop in and check, your relative may have sometimes forgotten to take care of themselves, perhaps missing a meal or medication.
Depending on the situation, you may now be able to visit but could be worried about a decline in their wellbeing and ability to manage.
Would a little help make a big difference?
Grace Care Advisers can help put in preventative measures to boost wellbeing and avoid future crises. They listen to the situation, look closely at the risk factors and identify common-sense measures that will work for your relative.
There is a fine balance when it comes to decisions on care. You want enough care to satisfy care needs and to help your relative live the best possible independent life. Too much intervention can lead to de-skilling them and if paid for privately is a waste of their money.
The Care Advisers help you establish that balance and provide advice on:
- suitable care options
- the best local providers of care
- the cost of care
- sources of statutory funding
- the legal framework around care
