Care Select is your companion through the emotional and practical aspects of choosing and funding care for an ageing relative or friend. If you’ve reached the point where you think a parent, relative, or even a close friend needs support – the Care Select Handbook can help you navigate the system.

Whether that is a partner, parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, family friend or close companion, Care Select guides you through the process. Developed to help people navigate the systems, Care Select looks the practical aspects of needing care and support, like understanding what may be needed, assessments and levels of support available, plus much more.

More than that though, Care Select understands that this is a time filled with emotion. Worries about ageing, supporting someone who was once so independent, balancing the wishes of everyone involved, including siblings or other relatives who may have thoughts on the best course of action.

Whether you live up the road or hundreds of miles away, have been caring and can no longer carry on or unable to care for them yourself, the Care Select Handbook will help you. The information on this website and in the handbook will help you to understand what support may be needed, how to talk about it with everyone involved, where to start when looking for services, how to decide what’s best and evaluate what is or isn’t working. Care Select offers information on dementia, life as a carer, paying for care and legal issues as well as discussing end of life when the time comes.
