Cllr Amanda Jupp, Cabinet Member for Adults’ Services, said: “I appreciate that seeking advice or support for care might seem a daunting prospect, but this document outlines the many different options that are available.
“I would encourage anyone who needs to find information on care to begin to investigate how and where they can find this advice so that they can make the choice as to how to live their lives. The Care Guide includes relevant details which will help inform their choice.
“Finding the right options in order to support your preferred lifestyle can actually help you live happily in your own home for many years to come.”
The guide covers:

- support for family and friends who provide care
- finding care at home
