“I have dealt with the Care Advice Centre for the past 5 years, starting from the time when my mother entered a care home, suffering from advanced dementia. It has been of invaluable support to me. I have received advice and guidance concerning the intricacies and legalities of the system and funding, as well as personal support. It can be a very lonely, confusing and even frightening world to deal with when they are unfamiliar and at a time when one is vulnerable because of what is happening to someone dear. Being taken by the hand and led through it has reduced the stress and loneliness, of what is, a huge responsibility for getting it right”. – P. Gough
