Care Advice

Choosing care with care

As the population ages, it’s likely that many of us will need to look after our elderly loved ones.

Getting quality care in later life can often cost thousands, so getting the right advice – and finding the right care – can be invaluable. Our partnership with Grace Care will give you access to unrivalled knowledge of the care system and the options open to you. And now, we can offer you this service at a special half price rate of just £60.

How Grace Care can help

To qualify for our special reduced rate, please call us on 0800 195 9244 and we’ll put you in touch with an expert adviser at Grace Care. They’ll explain the service in more detail and, if you’re happy to go ahead, your adviser will:

  • Talk to you in confidence about the needs and wishes of your elderly loved one
  • Provide you with a clear view of the care options available to you: at home, in a care home or in a combination of both
  • Explain more about state benefits and allowances
  • Send you a summary of everything you’ve discussed, as well as a range of helpful fact sheets.

Mrs Bryanston's Story

"My mother thought it was time to move to a care home, but until we talked to Grace I wasn’t sure how to proceed. I wanted to talk things over with someone experienced in these things so we could clarify our thinking. The Grace Care Adviser listened, answered all my questions and then explained all the options we might consider. She made it all seem so clear - I felt that at last I knew what steps to take and had some really sound advice to work on. Luckily we soon found a vacancy in a home that my mother likes. Grace were invaluable in pointing us in the right direction."
