A new, updated Norfolk – Your guide to care and support for adults 2018/19 was published last week in association with Norfolk County Council.  It gives readers crucial information on how to find and access care and support services throughout the county.

If you are looking for information on what your choices may be, this guide can help.  With information to help you understand your options, where to go for advice and how the paying for care system works, the guide can support you to make informed decisions.

The new edition of Norfolk – Your guide to care and support for adults 2018/19 and the accompanying website give information on all aspects of arranging care and support in and around Norfolk.  It includes information about how to stay independent for as long as possible, the different care and support options available and what to look for when choosing a care provider if you need one.

It also offers guidance on important issues such as paying for care and what financial assistance may be available from the local authority.  There are comprehensive listings of all registered care services throughout Norfolk, plus checklists to help you ask the right questions when visiting services.

It can be downloaded from www.norfolk.gov.uk/ careservices and is available in spoken word.
