CareAware

CareAware is a non profit making public information, advisory and advocacy service specialising in elderly care funding advice in the UK. We are a one stop shop for free advice on care fee funding for older people.

Our objectives are to improve public understanding and knowledge about the UK care system, to reinforce the rights and choices of the individual and to assist the public on the complex issues associated with elderly care funding advice issues

Information about the care system may not be easy to gather and often, there will be a need for neutral and unbiased guidance. CareAware was established to fulfil the role of providing independent advice on matters of care and to do so from the perspective of the individual in need.

Because CareAware does not have any links to Social Services or Government Departments, it is able to provide information and guidance which is neutral and without external influence.

For further information please get in touch with us or visit our website.
