A new, updated Isle of Wight Care Services Directory has been published today (Thursday) in association with Isle of Wight Council. It gives readers crucial information on how to access, and pay for, care services across the Island.
The new edition of the Isle of Wight Care Services Directory and accompanying website give information on all aspects of arranging care and support on the Isle of Wight. It includes how to stay independent for as long as possible, the different care and support options available and what to look for when choosing a care provider. It also offers guidance on important issues such as paying for care and what financial assistance may be available from the local authority.
There are comprehensive listings of all registered care services on the Island, plus checklists to help you ask the right questions when visiting services.
Robert Chamberlain, Managing Director of the directory’s publisher, Care Choices, commented:
“This is an invaluable source of information for anyone considering short or long term care on the Isle of Wight and contains vital information to help people decide what type of care and support is best for them.
“With the current crisis in social care, finding a care service for yourself or a loved one that meets their needs and is affordable can be a daunting and unfamiliar task. This new Isle of Wight Care Services Directory has been compiled to help people understand the process and offer them reassurance at every step of their journey.”
