Finding care information in the area has been made a little easier with the publication of a care services directory.
The Northumberland Care Services Directory 2013/14, which is published by Care Choices Ltd, is packed with useful editorial that explains all available care options and includes comprehensive listings of care providers for residential care or care in your own home.
There is also guidance on paying for care and what financial assistance is available from the Government.
Daljit Lally, corporate director of adults, housing and community health at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’re pleased to support the Care Services Directory which provides up to date information on care services for adults in Northumberland.
“It’s really important that people can easily find out about some of the big changes including changes to disability benefits, and information about the full range of health and social care support available to help people to stay active, connected and well in the communities they live.”
To receive a free copy of the Northumberland Care Services Directory 2013/14 simply call Adult Social Care at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust on (01670) 536400.
