New Care Services Directory for North Yorkshire
9:36am 30th April 2013
People seeking information about care service providers in North Yorkshire will have their task made easier from this week, with the publication of the second edition of the North Yorkshire Care Services Directory.
The Directory has been produced by Care Choices Ltd, in association with North Yorkshire County Council and the Independent Care Group. It contains comprehensive listings of organisations providing residential care, and care in the home, say the council. They add that there is also guidance on paying for services, and what financial assistance is available from the State.
“Making decisions about social care can be daunting, particularly for people who have had no involvement with it before,” said Helen Taylor, Corporate Director of Health and Adult Services at North Yorkshire County Council.
“This Directory provides clear, easy to understand guidance. While the County Council is not in a position to offer official endorsement to the organisations listed, it welcomes the publication of a directory which makes it very much easier for people to get information about the wide variety of services available.”
The Independent Care Group’s Chair, Mike Padgham said: “We are delighted to see this new edition of the Directory for North Yorkshire come to fruition.
“Social care is becoming increasingly important through the critical role it plays in caring for our older and vulnerable residents. It is therefore vital that we provide the information to make it as easy as possible for people to find the right care for their needs.”
Robert Chamberlain, publisher of the directory, said, ”When choosing care you should be armed with the most up-to-date information, to help you decide which kind of care is most suitable, who can provide it, and how it is to be paid for.
“The Care Services Directory is an invaluable source of information for anyone considering long-term care.”
The Directory is free, and can be obtained by calling 0845 8 72 73 74
