Which? Elderly Care is a free website created by Which? offering practical information for those considering how to arrange care for an older relative or friend, or even for themselves.
The site focuses on financing care, housing options and older people's needs, such as dealing with dementia and memory problems, and accessing local authority and NHS care and support. There is also a section for family carers, giving information about benefits, the carer's assessment, carers' rights and how to arrange respite care.
A care services directory enables visitors to the site to search for care homes, domiciliary care providers and support groups for people living with dementia together with local authority services for older people across the UK.
Alex Hayman, Managing Director at Which? says:
"We're delighted to be playing a part in shining a light on the inspiring role that so many people in our communities take on daily as a carer.
Caring for a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill can have a huge impact on your life. Which? Elderly Care ensures those that need it can stay informed by accessing up to date guidance that's easy to understand, all in one place."
