 Guidance & Resources 

Where to start? 
When it comes to a time we are unable to continue living at home without support many of us will be unfamiliar with what support is actually available to us and indeed even where to start. For example, we all know there are care homes, but do we know the difference between residential and nursing care? And home care? Is there even an option to remain living at home with the sort of support that is likely to be needed? Of course there is also the question surrounding how it will be funded and what to expect from the whole process. 
There is a great deal of information available in hard copy and on the internet, but this can add to the general confusion and does requires time to filter through. Our experience has meant we have links with both social and health care professionals in the Windsor, Maidenhead, Slough and Bracknell areas. Thus we can help direct you to the appropriate individual or organisation for meet your needs. For example; this could include us liaising with GPs, District Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational or Physical Therapists and Pharmacists.
