Few things make you feel more vulnerable than realising, at crisis point, that you don't know who to turn to, what questions to ask, or what actions to take next.
All too often, facing the fact that a much-loved parent, grand-parent, husband or wife, needs a care home only happens when an unexpected accident has left them unable to cope. You find your relative in hospital and then suddenly the NHS is relying on you to find a solution about where mum should convalesce - quickly.
Often you can be pressurised to find somewhere, rather than 'bed blocking' in hospital.

By working with you to find the ideal care home solution, whether for respite care or a long-term placement we will make sure you don't make a mistake when you are under pressure.

Now that my husband is beginning to settle into his care home, I wanted to write and thank you for all your help and expertise in finding a suitable care home for him at a time when I was finding life very difficult.
I do not think I could have managed without you. I appreciated your practical support in organising all the visits and even return visits with other members of my husband’s family.
Your knowledge of how to assess a home and to know what to look for in any assessment cut out hours of my time trying to understand reports, particularly at a time when I could not think straight. Your understanding of my emotional situation was a real blessing.
Although the care home we chose is not in my immediate neighbourhood, I am still convinced that it suits his needs and he will settle in well to this new environment.
To find an expert in the unchartered waters of care homes at a time of personal distress was wonderful.
Very many thanks.
With every good wish
