Do you know about direct payments?

If you’re entitled to funding from the NHS or your local authority, you’re usually able to get this paid directly to you. A direct payment gives you a lot more control over the type of care you want – ideal if you’re considering live-in care.

With Specialist, your carer will anticipate the need to wake up in the night and will be ready to provide more extensive personal care.

  • Household tasks and maintenance
  • More extensive personal care
