Care Advice

Essential independent care guidance, enabling you to make the best possible care decisions

For many of us, the prospect of arranging care support for our elderly loved ones or friends as they get older is often emotional and unsettling.  You and your family need to feel confident that they will be comfortable and well cared for.

Like many important decisions, understanding what’s involved and available in arranging care support can be a very confusing and complex process for many families.

The facts are that quality care in later life can often cost thousands; we’re living longer these days so getting the right advice and finding the right care are absolutely vital.

Working in partnership with Grace Consulting

To help meet the care needs of our customers, family and their friends, National Friendly are working in partnership with Grace Consulting to offer an independent and totally confidential care advice service, available to you at a time when you need it most.

This care advice service gives you access to expert guidance to help you unravel the complexities of the care system enabling you and your family to make the best possible care decisions.

To qualify for our special reduced rate, please call us on
0330 221 1171 and we’ll put you in touch with one of Grace Consulting’s expert advisers.

The adviser will explain the care advice service in more detail and, if you’re happy to go ahead, will arrange a telephone appointment with you.

They will also:

  • Listen carefully to your concerns
  • Provide you with practical guidance of the care options available to you or your loved one: whether at home, in a care home or a combination of both
  • Explain more about which state benefits are means-tested or available for free
  • Send you a summary of everything you’ve discussed, as well as a range of helpful fact sheets

From the first signs of needing care to an urgent situation, Grace Consulting will provide expert care advice and support to help you to start resolving your care issues and make the best possible care decisions.

Mrs Bryanston’s Story

Mrs Bryanston thought it was time her grandmother needed to think about moving to a care home, but Mrs Bryanston wasn’t sure how to go about helping her do this. She wanted to talk things over with someone experienced in these things, to help her clarify her thinking.

The Grace Consulting adviser carefully listened to Mrs Bryanston then explained the various options. She helped clarify what steps Mrs Bryanston could take and gave her some information sheets to read through with more information. Mrs Bryanston soon found a vacancy in a home that her grandmother liked. Grace Consulting were invaluable in pointing her in the right direction.

John’s Story

John’s dad was finding it difficult getting up and down the stairs. He loved his home and wanted to remain in it rather than move, but the stairs were causing him anxiety.

He lived off his state pension now but could not afford a stair lift. Then John discovered Grace Consulting. One call to them gave him all the information he needed in straightforward plain English. They were extremely supportive and provided John with guidance and information on where to go for potential support to fund the cost of the stairlift.
