Care Advice Buckinghamshire – www.careadvicebuckinghamshire.org

bucksWhether you are getting help from Adult Social Care or arranging your own care and support, you need good information and advice so that you can make the right decisions for you.

Care Advice Buckinghamshire will be available from 1st April 2015 and is a new website from Buckinghamshire County Council giving you information, advice and guidance on a wide range of services and an online eMarket to purchase care and support services as well as equipment.

When the fee Cap is introduced in April 2016, you will also be able to manage your Care Account through Care Advice Buckinghamshire and more information about this will be made available later in 2015. Residents, service users and carers can use the website to find out about a wide range of services, activities and events – things to do, how to play an active role in their community and ways to get around the county.

Information can be found on health and wellbeing, including services and organisations to help people maintain their independence in their own homes, with information on local and national charities, community groups and organisations offering advocacy services, money advice and day care opportunities. Care home and supported housing providers advertise their services so you can find more out about the options available for short and long-term care.
