You shouldn’t settle for anything less than the very best service of care. Choice and decisions about how you purchase care should not be taken lightly.
You must ensure you get the most reliable, dignified and compassionate service that you deserve It is a life-changing experience.
You have so many choices. You can request funding known as “direct payments” which are voluntary, to help fund a higher standard of care that truly suits your needs, rather than settling for arranged local authority services to be provided for you.
It’s easy and straight forward to setup direct payments. A direct payment will be created after an assessment by social services. If the council decides that you need any kind of support, you will receive a personal budget which you can choose to receive as a direct payment instead of letting them arrange your service for you.
