Grace Consulting has been chosen by Westfield Health, the award winning health and wellbeing provider, to deliver expert independent care advice to its Good4You and Advantage cash plan policyholders.
Grace also administers Westfield Health's new Care After Hospital benefit, helping source appropriate care at home, to aid recuperation when needed most.
Westfield Health's cash plan policyholders now benefit from advice on care for themselves and their elderly relatives. They receive practical advice and emotional support to help resolve any care issue, such as navigating the care system, understanding care options and state funding of care. The service includes intensive research into the most appropriate care providers for each individual, saving time and providing reassurance.
In addition to the care advice benefit, policyholders may also receive up to 18 hours of home care services following an overnight stay in hospital.
Commercial Director at Westfield Health, David Capper, said: "Following our investment in 3rings Care Ltd in 2016, we're very pleased to be working with Grace Consulting who, with 30 years of experience in offering independent care advice, are well established in this field. This demonstrates our commitment to help support the delivery of improved quality of life for all demographics.
"The aging population is placing greater pressure on our UK healthcare system than ever before, and this is only going to increase over the coming years. At Westfield Health we're proud to be working with such an experienced provider to offer valuable care services to our policyholders."
Sue Lewis, Director of Sales and Marketing at Grace Consulting, commends Westfield Health on its foresight in addressing the growing demand for care head-on. At a time of great strain on social care, Westfield Health now offers advice to policyholders to help cut through the complexities of care, and provides a valuable additional benefit, which helps source and provide funds for short-term care at home on discharge from hospital, maximising chances of recovery and minimising risk of re-admission.
