Finding the right care package can be a minefield, and carers often tell us that negotiating the maze that is health and social care can be really difficult. Our guide helps people to understand what they should look out for when buying care and points people to where they can find quality assured care services from across our network.
Carers Trust also realise that people with care needs are not the only people with needs when buying care, and encourage people to think care, think carer and think family too when making decisions.
