A pioneering service providing independent financial advice for those seeking home care has been launched by a major care provider in Lancashire.
Caring Hands Group is offering expert support for those who need to arrange home care, along with information on the best options for financial and retirement planning.
Chairman Greg Bamber said: “It is evident from the enquiries we receive from those looking for domiciliary care services that the financial implications are also of paramount importance. For the older person or their relatives making these important decisions, we are offering a peace of mind service with care and financial advice tailored to their specific needs from one source. For many people we find solutions that they didn’t realise were possible. Increasingly, people are living longer and have needs for a care package which may involve the costs of a care home or care in their own home.”
