Welcome Welcome to the new Essex Care Choices directory. Now in its 16th year it combines comprehensive editorial about all your care options with details of care services in the county. Needing care and support from a little assistance around the house

to formal care in a care home can help to maximise your quality of life. Whether you need assistance to maintain your independence or nursing care to help you on a daily basis, care and support is a positive choice.

Choice and independence This directory aims to explain how you can get the support you need to enjoy the best quality of life for as long as possible by guiding you through the maze of care options available from the independent and state sectors. The independent sector is particularly strong in the county, offering a wide range of specialist services for both young and old in a variety of settings.

If you’re not sure of your specific care needs, Essex County Council’s Adult Social Care Department has a duty to carry out care assessments, which look at what sort of help and support you may need. These are sometimes called a ‘care needs assessment’. Once this has happened, the Department may also undertake a financial assessment to define how much you will be expected to contribute towards any care you receive.

Help with support Support can mean different things to different people. For example, you could benefit from some home care to support you with personal things, like having a bath, washing or getting dressed, cooking and eating meals. If care and support to stay at home is what you would like to consider then the comprehensive listings starting on page 15 will help

you to find the right provider for you. Alternatively, you may want to move into accommodation with care services on-site, information on all the available care and support options start on page 62. There is also information on services and support to help you maintain your independence for as long as possible.

Care homes For some, a move into residential care may be the best alternative. Homes should be able to offer you security and a sense of belonging, where you are valued as a person with your own preferences and rights. Comprehensive lists of care homes and care

homes with nursing begin on page 62. They explain what sort of care each home is registered to provide, along with contact details. They are broken down into regions and feature all specialist care providers. A colour-coded key will guide you to the services provided by each home.

Checklists Useful checklists to be used when considering home care, care homes and dementia care services are also included in this edition. Take them with you

on visits to potential providers as they list important questions to ask managers and staff to help you get a fuller picture of the services on offer.

Essex Independent Care Association (EICA) Essex Independent Care Association (EICA) is an independent voluntary ‘not for profit’ organisation which represents the interests of social care providers from Essex, Southend and Thurrock. Care provider members include residential care homes, nursing homes and home care providers. Provider members provide a wide range of services working with older people, those with learning disabilities, children and young people with disabilities and working age adults. The Association offers members a range of services to meet their needs and a mutual support network. Services include: • Criminal Records Bureau service for care providers to enable them to recruit their staff safely and with confidence. • Members briefings: regular information sessions for care providers on a wide range of topics to support good practice throughout the social care sector in Essex, Southend and Thurrock. • A website to keep members abreast of new developments within the sector, whilst

signposting them to sources of information which may be helpful to them in running their organisation. • Information, advice and guidance on staff training and development, as well as funding to help care providers train their staff. • Support for the My Home Life scheme, which promotes best practice by creating a positive culture in care homes based on a relationshipcentered approach. It recognises that caring communities are created through good relationships, first with ourselves and then between work colleagues, residents, family, friends and the wider community. Training managers to create such an environment is essential in establishing such a culture.

South Essex Care and Health Association Choosing a care home or a care service for a relative or a friend is not an easy task.

The Association is active, involved and dedicated. It provides regular training and development programmes for staff and is a Criminal Records Bureau registered umbrella body enabling CRB checks on all our member’s staff as required. We strive constantly to keep our members fully up to date with latest care practices and changes in the law as it affects care homes.

Who can advise me? This Directory’s free advice line, in association with the national charity FirstStop Advice, provides an independent advice and information service encompassing care, accommodation, funding and rights. A personalised report can be generated providing details of all care homes or housing with care schemes that meet your criteria with supplementary information about choosing

and funding. One call to the freephone number 0800 38 92 077 will enable the service to build a profile of exactly what type of care you’re looking for, while taking into account your personal needs and interests. You can discuss your needs over the phone, request a call back, face to face or via live chat online at www.firststopadvice.org.uk.

Can I choose my care and support? Choice and control are at the heart of all decisions in health and social care and should be central to your journey. If you are searching for and paying for your own care (see information on page 46 for details of whether or not you will have to pay for your own care), you have complete control over your choice of care or support provider. If you are funded by the local authority you may receive a personal budget to give you choice over your services (see page 51). You still have a choice over care provider and a local authority directive on choice of care home sets out that a local authority must arrange care for you in your preferred accommodation as long as:

your assessed needs, • a place is available in the accommodation, • the provider is willing and able to provide you with accommodation in line with the local authority’s usual contractual terms. If the cost of the accommodation is higher than the local authority would usually expect to pay you may be expected to find a third party top up to cover the difference in cost.

• it meets your assessed needs,

More information on ‘top ups’ can be found on page 47 or by contacting this Directory’s free financial advice line, in association with FirstStop Advice on 0800 31 02 011 or by visiting its website www.firststopadvice.org.uk.

Do I need an assessment? The council has a duty to carry out an assessment of your needs if you would like them to. Essex County Council also assesses the needs of carers. This may involve someone speaking to you by telephone or visiting you, either at home or in hospital, to discuss your situation, and work out what help would be appropriate to meet your needs. Two assessments can be carried out; the first determines your care needs. The second looks at your financial circumstances, and defines how much you will be expected to contribute towards any care you receive. Having an assessment can help you to determine what care you may require and what your specific needs are. This will help you in your search for care and support. If you are paying for your own care, it will give you the information you need to speak

with care providers about the services to best support you. Regardless of your funding status, you are not obliged to have an assessment and you can stop at any point and proceed with buying your services privately. The services, providers and support in this Directory will be able to meet any of your needs assessed or otherwise. To request an assessment please contact Essex County Council’s Adult Social Care Department.

Helping you to Choose and Pay for Care • 0800 38 92 077 Advice for older people


Is there any help for my carer? If you are cared for by a loved one, support for them can make a real difference. Asking for help can be difficult but there are a number of organisations in the Essex area who can offer support. Support could be: • Aids and adaptations to the home, such as grab rails, hoists to help with moving the person if you’re immobile, devices to detect for gas and shut it off, to detect if you get out of bed or a chair, fall detectors, alarms if you exit the property. These electronic devices are called telecare and more information can be found on page 28. • Someone to come and sit with you or take you out a few hours every now and then, or on a regular basis, to give your carer some time to themself.

• Or a short or respite stay in a residential care home to enable them to take a longer break. • Support is also available at short notice in cases of emergencies. If your carer is able to look after their health and wellbeing they will be in a better position to care for you. There are many different services and support groups for carers in the Essex area. The Carers UK website www.carersuk.org has a wealth of information to help and support you in your caring role. It also has links to carers organisations in Essex under its ‘Help & Advice’ tab, ‘Finding help where you live’. For more useful contact information, see page

Can carers receive any benefits? Carers are entitled to claim benefits; the main benefit being the Carer’s Allowance. The current rate is £58.45 a week. It is not means-tested but any earnings may affect whether a carer is entitled to it. It is also taxable. To receive Carer’s Allowance your carer must: • Be 16 or over, • Not in full-time education, • Earn £100 a week or less, • Be a UK resident, • Look after someone who gets a qualifying disability benefit, • Look after that person for at least 35 hours a week.

To claim, they can fill out an online form via the GOV.UK website www.gov.uk or by contacting Carers Allowance Unit Tel: 0845 608 4321 Text phone: 0845 604 5312 Email: cau.customer-services@dwp.gsi.gov.uk Or for all other benefit enquiries Benefit Enquiry Line Tel: 0800 822 200 Text phone: 0800 243 355 Email: BEL-Customer-Services@dwp.gsi.gov.uk

What are the rights of carers that also work? If your carer also works, the Work and Families Act 2006 gives eligible carers the right to ask their employer for flexible working. Their employer has

to consider the request seriously but can refuse if they have a good reason. Although there is a right to appeal.

What is a carer’s assessment? An informal carer is entitled to a carer’s assessment; whether or not you receive services. A carer’s assessment will look at their caring role and how this impacts on their health and wellbeing; it will also consider how much caring they can do whilst still undertaking other activities they need to do such as work or training, plus any help they may need. A carer’s assessment is just for your carer in

their caring role and will not impact on any benefits either of you receive. To request a carer’s assessment your carer needs to contact Essex County Council’s Adult Social Care department. It may be possible for them to fill out a selfassessment form or have a chat with an assessor. They will then be advised of what help and support they may be able to receive.

What support is available for me to return home from hospital? Returning home after a hospital stay can be difficult and you may need extra help. Your discharge from hospital should be planned in advance on the

ward by a multi-disciplinary team involving you in any discussions. There are NHS and local authority services that can support you.

What is community nursing? District nurses and other healthcare staff attached to your doctor’s surgery will complete an assessment and provide nursing care according to

your needs. This may be either at the surgery or in your own home, and arrangements will have been made in hospital before you return home.

Can I have reablement services? Reablement is designed to help you relearn or regain the skills you need to live independently. This is a form of short-term support that might be appropriate for people who have lost some of their independence after leaving hospital or residential care, have physical disabilities, need support to remain at home or to regain skills to live independently. Reablement services are provided specifically to help you manage tasks on your own. This might be personal care or food preparation. In traditional home care, someone would visit and do these tasks. With reablement, a reablement assistant will work with you so you can learn (or re-learn) important tasks and skills needed for everyday life.

Reablement can help you regain independence or maintain your independence for longer and is for those who are at significant risk of losing their safety and independence. Reablement may be suggested if it is appropriate for your needs. If it is required on leaving hospital, those involved in your discharge will help to arrange it. If you are not in hospital speak to Essex County Council’s Adult Social Care department about whether you could receive support. It will normally last up to six weeks and will be free of charge as long as you are making progress. This progress will be reviewed every week by the reablement team or your care manager.

What is intermediate care? Intermediate care is designed to rehabilitate you, enable you to manage by yourself, support you through any illness and prevent you from going into hospital. Intermediate care, provided by the NHS, is free. It can be provided in your own home

or in a care home and can last from a few days to a few weeks, but is usually limited to a maximum of six weeks. Based around a programme of therapy and treatment, intermediate care is designed to make you as independent as possible.

What is continuing care? Continuing care is the name given to the care needed by an adult who requires help over an extended period to manage their daily life because of illness, disability, accident or the effects of getting older. It is a package of care that involves services and funding from both the NHS and Adult Social Care. There will be no charge for the NHS part of the continuing care but the local authority may charge for the services it provides. Continuing NHS healthcare is provided solely by

8

the NHS if you have on-going healthcare needs. This is free of charge, wherever it is delivered and can be provided in any setting. In your own home, the NHS funds all care required to meet your assessed needs. In a care home, the NHS makes a contract with the home and pays the full fees for your accommodation as well as all your care. If your needs change, regular reviews will be carried out and your care and/or funding arrangements will change to meet them.

What does an occupational therapist do? Occupational therapists can help you lead a more independent life, using a variety of methods, including the use of aids and equipment. They can assess your home for hazards and point out things that might contribute to falls. Visiting you at home, an occupational therapist will be able suggest adaptations that will improve your mobility. Handrails upstairs may be useful or a ramp up to your front door could help if you are in a wheelchair? Major alterations such as fitting a downstairs bathroom or widening doorways can be paid for with a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG). Eligibility will

depend on an assessment by the local authority. An occupational therapist will talk you through any new equipment you may be given, as well as help you apply for funding for major adaptations, if you need them. To start the ball rolling, contact your local authority and explain your circumstances. An assessment of your needs will determine whether an occupational therapist will be the best person to help and what charges (if any) you can expect. For more information on home adaptations, see page

What if I need to arrange formal social care? If you are leaving hospital and need to find home care or a place in residential care please see pages 11 and 34. For information about paying for care

please see page 46. For other essential information, please see page 53.

Keeping your independence How can I remain independent as long as possible? Looking after yourself, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating a balanced diet and taking regular exercise can improve your muscle strength, tone and general wellbeing. This may reduce your reliance on services. Regular exercise can reduce your risk of developing certain long-term health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and some cancers. It can also help to improve your cognitive abilities, mobility and wellbeing.

Many people feel that as they get older, aches, pains and stiffness reduce their ability to exercise. However even the lightest activity has more benefits than doing nothing. If you have a health condition, contact your GP before starting to exercise. For more information on physical activity guidelines for older people and exercises you may like to try, visit the NHS Choices website http:// www.nhs.uk/Livewell/fitness/Pages/physicalactivity-guidelines-for-older-adults.aspx

Can I receive care and support in my own home? Home help Home help is light support at home to help you with everyday tasks. This might include: • Help with domestic tasks such as housework, cooking, shopping and gardening. • Elderly care services such as delivery of meals. • Shopping. • Small maintenance jobs and independent living services such as changing light bulbs, replacing a tap washer, doing small repairs, making your home safe and secure, and keeping equipment in working order.

10

• Company and social activities. Choosing the right home help can in itself provide company as well as help at home. • Transport to and from shops, doctor, hospital and so on. • Walking your dog, and keeping it healthy and clean. • Installing security equipment such as an emergency alarm, entry phone or key box. For information on paying support in your own home, please see page 46.

Home care or domiciliary care If you require more care and support at home, for example help with personal care tasks you will require home care or domiciliary care services. Home care differs from home help because it offers personal care. Care staff need to be properly trained particularly in moving and handling and the use of hoists for some tasks. The main tasks conducted by home care workers are: • Washing and dressing. • Getting up and going to bed. • Meal preparation and help with feeding. • Continence care. • Taking medication regularly. Care staff can call in on a daily basis to assist with any of the tasks described above. Depending on the level of help required their visits can be just half an hour or up to several hours. Generally, visits are available from 7am until 10pm. Some people will need multiple visits per day. Night services can also be provided. The hourly rate for these types of services

typically range from £12 to £24 per hour depending on the services required, the time of day and the location. Rural areas may present particular difficulties and a travel charge will probably be made in addition to the normal hourly rate. There are clear advantages for those who want to stay in their own homes by having care at home, however, there are also potential setbacks that should be addressed. These include having a succession of different domiciliary care workers coming at different times, or, occasionally the domiciliary home care services might fail because of staffing pressures due to holidays, sickness, etc. Before you make any decisions regarding the provision of care, be sure to contact several providers and ask for a ‘Service User’s Guide’ and their charges and a draft contract between you and the care provider. For further advice and information on home care, call this Directory’s independent advice line: 0800 38 92 077 provided by FirstStop Advice. For details of help at home providers in your area, see the home care listings starting on page 15.

Live-in care 24 hour live-in care can accommodate people with a very high dependency on a permanent basis. It can also provide respite breaks for regular carers and short-term support following hospital discharge. In some cases it’s preferable and more economical to have a care worker actually living in the home. This can be for a short period such as a week, or on an on-going basis. Typical charges for this service range from £600 to £1400 per week depending on the amount of care and the particular skills required. Live-in care is also available to people with permanent physical or learning disabilities who require long-term ongoing care. For more information on residential care, see page 34.

All home care and live-in care providers are regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission which publishes inspection reports on its website www.cqc.org.uk. When considering a service it’s always a good idea to check its report.

Choosing a home care agency checklist These questions may be useful when considering using the services of a home care (domiciliary) provider to help you build up a picture of how your care needs will be met in your own home. For care packages which have been arranged by Essex County Council, contracts and care plans will have been completed by your care manager

and the agencies used will have been accredited to work for the Council. People arranging and funding their own care either privately or through a Direct Payment or a Personal Budget can choose their own worker or care agency.

Agencies

1 2 3

• What experience does the agency have in your particular field of need? Can it supply references for you to check? • Home care agencies providing personal care, must be registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission. Ask to see a copy of their registration certificate. • How long has the agency been operating? • How many carers would the agency assign to care for you and would you see the same one every day? If not, how does the staff rota operate and what happens if your carer goes on holiday or is sick, will you be notified in advance that a different carer will be attending? • How can you contact the agency in an emergency or outside office hours? • How hard or easy would it be to make a complaint and how are things then put right? • If this is a private contract ask for a copy of the agency’s contract terms and read these carefully with someone you trust. Get as much help as you can going over it and ask any questions you may have before signing anything. The Citizens Advice Bureau or Age UK could help with this.

Carers

1 2 3

• You should expect your personal preferences, dignity and privacy to be respected. Discuss this with the agency and ask how the most suitable carers for your particular care are chosen. Can you talk to them before deciding? • Carers should be fully trained or be in ongoing training. Ask the agency about their policies on this. • You will have a care plan drawn up by the agency which the carers will work to. Ask how often this plan will be reviewed by the agency. • Carers must be checked with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and have a criminal records disclosure – make sure this is the case. Paying • If your care needs do not meet Essex County Council’s eligibility criteria and have been arranged privately you should check carefully the fee rates charged and exactly what is covered.

What other support can I receive in my home? Assistive technology Telecare Assistive technology such as telecare is equipment that can detect falls, inactivity, smoke, flooding, gas or extreme temperatures in the home. Sensors are discreetly placed in the home and when triggered an alert is received either by trained operators at a 24-hour call centre, or directly by a relative or carer. Operators will talk to clients using a two-

way speech function and will stay on the line until help arrives. Telecare can support users to remain independent and relatives and carers are reassured, safe in the knowledge that should an incident occur, they will know about it. Some devices can also help to monitor particular health conditions and reduce the need for hospital admission.

Who is telecare for? Telecare can help restore confidence for people who feel vulnerable in their own homes for a variety of reasons; these could be because of living alone, frailty or the need to summon help in an emergency. It could also be as a short-term measure during a period of convalescence.

Telecare really can support choice and independence for people to remain in their own homes, it also enables existing care and support to respond more effectively and can sustain carers in their role.

How do I get telecare? In order to receive the service, you can approach one of your local Careline service providers independently. An occupational therapist can advise you and assess you for all equipment. New developments in telecare are happening all the time and your local independent living centre will have demonstrations of available equipment. The Essex Independent Living Centre can be found at

Can I make changes to my home to enable me to live here for longer? Adaptations and home improvements could help you to live in your house for longer and make life easier. They can include a ramp to the front door or grab rails or a shower you can sit in. Home Improvement Agency services are also known as HIAs, Care & Repair or staying put schemes. HIAs are local not-for-profit organisations located throughout the country and they assist elderly people to improve, repair, maintain or adapt their home. HIAs provide advice and information for home owners and private tenants and they will check to ensure what benefits and grants you may be entitled to. They can visit you at home, work closely with other agencies involved, help to identify reputable tradespeople to undertake works and oversee the work. HIAs help vulnerable people to ensure their home is a comfortable and safe place to live independently. HIAs may be able to recommend a handyperson to help with small repair or adaptations around your home. Alternatively, Age UK runs a HandyVan service in Chelmsford, Southend and Havering which provides home security such as fitting key safes, installing door

and window locks and fitting door chains and door viewers. Small repairs, such as: putting up curtain rails, shelves and pictures, moving small items of furniture, fixing cupboard doors or loose carpets. Safety measures, such as: fitting smoke alarms, providing carbon monoxide detectors, installing grab rails and hand rails, replacing light bulbs or providing slips, trips and falls advice. To find out more call 0845 026 1055 or visit www.ageuk.com/handyvan. There are grants available to help with the cost of adaptations. These include the Disabled Facilities Grant. To claim this grant you will need to contact Essex County Council who will arrange for an occupational therapist to visit you at home and assess your needs. They will then recommend which alterations may be necessary for you. If the council agrees and approves the work you will need to complete some forms, including a financial assessment, and they will apply for the grant. You should hear within six months whether you have been successful. The financial assessment will determine how much you may be expected to contribute towards the costs.

Can I get meals on wheels? Delivery of ready meals to your home can easily be arranged. There are services that provide delivery of frozen meals, or delivery of freshly cooked hot meals. Frozen meals can be delivered in bulk and kept in your freezer until required, though the delivery of hot meals is for immediate consumption. Councils

can arrange meals delivered to your door, or meals on wheels, though you would have to meet their eligibility criteria for older people and it wouldn’t necessarily be free. National and local commercial organisations also provide meals delivered to your door at a charge.

How can I get out and meet people? Day care services Day care is usually a community-based service offering you an opportunity to get out of home, meet other people, try new activities and sometimes receive specialist services such as chiropody or hairdressing. Some centres also offer a hot meal or lunch club and can arrange transport to and from the centre.

Befriending services Befriending services can offer you companionship and support to help stop you feeling isolated or lonely. Companions could accompany you on appointments or outings or even just have a cuppa

and a chat. Companions may be volunteers or employed by private companies such as home care agencies. They should be fully trained and have Criminal Records Bureau checks.

What other forms of housing with care are available? Housing with care can come in many guises including sheltered housing, very sheltered housing,

extra care housing and assisted living. It is a generic term for all the models that offer care services.

Sheltered housing Sheltered or retirement housing is suitable for people who like living independently but want the reassurance of knowing that assistance is on hand if there is an emergency. Sometimes called retirement housing, there are many different types of sheltered schemes, available both to rent and to buy. Schemes usually consist of between 15 and 40 dwellings. These may be self-contained studio apartments, one or two-bedroom flats or bungalows or luxury apartments. Some schemes are simply housing designed to meet the needs of older people and linked to a community alarm. Many schemes have a scheme manager/warden either visiting or based on site as well as the community alarm service. There are

often communal facilities such as a lounge, laundry, guest flat and garden. Meals are not normally provided but a few schemes include a restaurant and some can arrange hot meals.

Extra care housing Extra care housing is a concept rather than a housing type and covers a range of specialist housing models, which provide high level of services and facilities, such as on-site domestic support, meal provision and recreational facilities, as well as accommodation and, in some schemes, nursing care where necessary. Extra care housing provides a flexible approach to personal care with access to 24-hour support to deliver planned or emergency care, and so can reduce the need to move into a more residential care setting.

Extra care offers one or two bedroomed, selfcontained accommodation, eg a bungalow or flat, to both single people and couples. It incorporates particular design features such as wheelchair accessibility throughout including level access showers and has key guiding principles to maintain the independence of the residents for as long as possible. Extra Care housing can be owned, rented, part owned and part rented and leasehold. Some developments mix types of tenures.

very sheltered housing Very sheltered housing is a form of extra care housing. It is usually provided by the private sector and if you are becoming increasingly frail or need more assistance it enables you to retain your independence in a home of your own for as long as

possible by providing meals, domestic assistance and 24/7 housekeeping staff cover. Social sector providers also use the term for housing that is somewhere between traditional sheltered and modern extra care.

Assisted living Assisted living can be used to describe privatelyprovided, short term rental properties with care services for older people who can no longer live on their own at home but don’t need 24-hour complex

medical supervision, and with optional other ‘hotel’ services such as cleaning, laundry, meals and hairdressing available if desired. It is similar to very sheltered housing and extra care housing.

Care villages Retirement/care villages offer a variety of types of accommodation specifically for older people. Aimed at offering a wide range of choice of accommodation and care, the village is based on supporting residents throughout the ageing process. They are usually in a rural setting and have

many community facilities. A typical retirement village may have one, two or three-bedroom flats and bungalows, to buy or rent, and a restaurant, clubroom, shop, laundry, cleaning services, leisure facilities and perhaps a medical centre, carers and a minibus.

Close care Close care schemes are usually small, often 6 to 25 flats or bungalows on the same site as a care home. Residents usually have some services included in

their service charge and can purchase other services such as meals, personal care and cleaning from the care home.

What services are offered by housing with care? Different models of housing with care offer different packages of domestic and personal care services which may include: • Practical help and support - most developments employ management staff whose role includes offering information, guidance and day-to-day support to residents. • Domestic assistance such as help with housework and shopping is commonly available, sometimes as part of the standard package of services, sometimes as an add-on charged for separately. Personal laundry services are sometimes available and, in developments with a restaurant, a home meals delivery services might be offered. • Personal care includes assistance with dressing, feeding, washing and toileting, as well as advice, encouragement and emotional and psychological support. Many developments have care staff on site, sometimes 24/7. In others, onsite management staff will arrange or facilitate care when required. Chiropody and physiotherapy services are also common. • Nursing care includes tasks normally carried out or supervised by a qualified nurse, such as administering medication and dressing wounds. Few housing developments have their own nursing staff, though some are built alongside a nursing home from which nursing care can be provided either in your own home, or through daily visits to, or temporary stays in, the nursing home. • Emergency help - in all developments there are arrangements for summoning help in case of emergency. Pull cords are installed around the

32

home and residents can also opt to wear a pendant or wrist band with a call button. These basic user-triggered systems are referred to as telecare and incorporate Carelines, social alarms and community alarms. For more information on telecare see page 28.

What is residential care? Residential care is a term that refers to care homes. There are two types of care home:

Care homes offering personal care only If you are reasonably active, but would like greater security and care, a care home offering only personal care may be the best option. Personal care includes bathing, feeding, dressing and help with moving around.

Care homes with nursing If you think you may need nursing care, a care home providing nursing care may be the best solution for you. The cost of the nursing care part of your fees is paid by the NHS to the home directly:

the current amount is £108.70 per week. You can contact the Nurse Care Management Teams for your area at your local Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). All care providers in the country must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). All services are inspected by the CQC, who report on their findings. These inspection reports are available from the care service or the CQC’s website www.cqc.org.uk. Further information about the CQC can be found on page 55.

For information on paying for care, please see page 46.

What else should I know about care homes? Choosing the right care home to suit your personal needs is essential and you should seek advice when making such a big decision. Some care homes provide for mixed dependency, so you don’t have to move if your care needs change. If you are married and want to move together but have different care needs, some care homes will be able to accommodate you both and have double bedrooms available too. If you think that your best choice is to move into a care home, there are several things to consider.

There are many different sorts of care homes. There are large homes that are like hotels (with care) and there are small family-style homes. Some are run by large organisations and some are run by family businesses. There are even homes run by professional associations, unions and religious organisations for their members and families. Because there are such a variety of care homes, it is important that you consider more than one before making a choice.

Choosing the right care home for Mum was made easy. • Nursing Care • Residential Care • Dementia Care • Respite Care • Day Care

From the moment my mother and I first visited her Barchester care home, we knew we had found somewhere pretty special. Elegant surroundings, delicious food and beautiful gardens were made even more appealing by the presence of like-minded residents with whom she can socialise and enjoy activities. For my part, knowing that she’s safe in the care of such a dedicated and compassionate team gives me great peace of mind. And for that I’m extremely grateful.

T hank you, Barchester!

The listings beginning on page 62 are a great starting point and will help you to think about which homes you may like to look at and the areas in which you’d like to live. The listings in this directory have service user bands which set out who they can care for. Start by choosing homes that meet your needs. When you contact the home ask to speak to the manager and ask him or her to send you a company brochure and copy of the most recent inspection report. Inspection reports can also be downloaded from www.cqc.org.uk. For more information on inspection and inspection reports see page 55. Once you have a number of homes you’d like to look at arrange to visit them. You should ideally visit at different times of the day to see what the home is like at mealtimes or in the morning or afternoon. Initially arrange to visit at a time that suits you, you can always arrange to have a second visit at a different time if you’d like to see the home again. Take a family member or friend with you to get their opinions too. It is also useful to have a checklist of questions to ask, see page 39. Ask someone to make a few notes whilst you go around, you can then refer back to these when making your decision. First impressions count, as with any choice of home, you need to feel happy, comfortable, settled and confident that you’ll enjoy living there. Ask to speak to some of the residents and staff to get a feeling of what life is like in the home. If you’d like to get a feel of day to day life in the home, drop in unexpectedly. A good care home should promote your independence and choice. They should get to know you, your likes and dislikes and put together a care plan of your needs as well as08:58 yourPage preferences.

This should be reviewed regularly and can contain both medical and personal details like any medication you have, when you should take it and what hobbies or interests you have. When you come to move in give yourself some time to settle. It can be a big adjustment. Some homes offer trial stays for you to see if you like living in the home once you’ve moved in. Ask if this is possible at your chosen care home. If, when you move in or have a trial stay, you have any teething problems discuss these with staff and management. They can usually be ironed out easily meaning you can enjoy your new home. If you have any concerns or compliments to make see page 55 on how to do this.

Will I need to sign a contract? If you are self-funding your care you will have to sign a contract with your care provider, it is important to speak to solicitors with experience in this field. Any contract should explain: the cost of care, what services are included in the price and how often this is reviewed; what complaints procedure is in place; what your rights are and the obligations of the care provider under the contract; the procedure for cancelling a contract and the administering of medication. If your place is funded by the local authority it will contract directly with the care provider however you should receive a written copy of the terms and conditions.

Is going into residential care always a permanent move? Residential care can be used in a number of ways to meet individual needs.

See page 47 for details of contracts for those paying third party payments.

‘Short Term Break’ or ‘Respite’ – this is a chargeable service though it won’t take your property into account when assessing your contribution to the cost of care. You can have a number of short stays in a residential home in a year. This might help you and your family or carers to manage your needs without requiring permanent residential accommodation.

assessing your contribution to the cost of care (as long as the temporary stay does not exceed 52 weeks without good reason and subject to the conditions outlined in the Department of Health’s Charging for Residential Accommodation Guide). An example might be if you need to leave your home whilst major repairs are carried out but want to return once these have been completed.

‘Intermediate’ residential care – this refers to situations where someone coming out of hospital is discharged into residential care. This type of placement enables a decision to be made about your future needs while ensuring you can leave hospital as soon as possible. You will not be charged for the first six weeks of intermediate residential care. For more information on intermediate care see page 8.

Permanent residential care – going into residential accommodation may be the best way of meeting your needs in the long term. This is chargeable and will take into account your money and assets when assessing your contribution to the cost of your care. For more information on funding residential care, see page 46.

Temporary residential care – this can last up to 52 weeks, with the goal of returning you to living independently. This is a chargeable service though it won’t take your property into account when

your right to choose a care home You have the right to choose a care home that you would like to live in and that meets your needs. If you are funding your own place you are free to visit and decide upon any care home, anywhere in the country. If the local authority it funding your care place, you still have the right to choose a home to meet your assessed needs however, if the cost of the accommodation is higher than the local authority would usually expect to pay you may be expected

to find a third party top up to cover the difference in cost.

The home you choose must be suitable for your assessed needs and comply with the terms and conditions set by the authority. The fees that your local authority will pay may vary. They may offer

Specialist care needs Dementia care First steps If you, or someone you care for, have dementia the initial point of contact to access care services is either your GP (for health care) or the local authority. Your GP, as well as discussing your concerns, will be able to carry out a series of tests which will establish the nature of your condition and advise whether treatment is possible. Some forms of dementia are not permanent and can be caused by a range of emotional, physiological and physical ailments, which bring on

dementia-like symptoms. It is important that any diagnosis eliminates the possibility of a reversible dementia before a medical prognosis is made. Following a diagnosis of dementia, your GP may refer you to a specialist like a Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry, a Community Psychiatric Nurse or an occupational therapist with a special interest in dementia care. People with dementia can be cared for in their own home or in specialist care homes depending on their specific needs.

Support in the community A range of community care services are available to help you stay in your own home. These are the same for those without dementia just with differing levels of support and include home care (discussed on page 11); meals in the home; sitting services (which provide a break for any carer); advice on equipment and adaptations; day care centres and respite care.

These services can be provided directly by registered providers if you do not require or are ineligible for local authority funding. The local authority has a duty to assess each person on an individual basis in order to identify and meet any eligible needs. Depending on your needs you may need specialist care, and if you are eligible you will be supported with the appropriate

Support in the community continued services. If you are not eligible you are free to choose and arrange any support you feel necessary to help you live the life you want to. You will be

required to pay for this yourself although you will be able to use any benefits you may receive. For more information on benefits see page 47-48.

Residential dementia care If the time comes when remaining at home is no longer viable, the benefits of residential care need considering. Questions to ask of any home registered for someone with dementia would include: • Who is the senior clinician who can act as a single point of contact for people to approach for information and advice? • What training programmes do staff participate in? • Does the home offer a person-centred approach to their care planning?

home is critical. The use of medication is a highly emotive subject and any psychotropic medication must be very carefully prescribed. A fine balance exists between ‘acting in the best interests of the individual’ by prescribing medicine and the benefits of ‘normalisation’ where time and energy is spent maintaining familiar, comfortable surroundings which help reduce stress and possibly avoid the need for certain medication. When looking for a specialist dementia care home use the checklist on the opposite page to help you compare what they offer.

• Is the home designed with the needs of its clients in mind, especially safety and accessibility? • Is there plenty of natural light? • Is moving around helped by easily-understood signage?

Local support There are many organisations to support people with dementia and their families in Essex. There are support groups for people with dementia and their family carers, groups offering information and advice, even groups offering leisure activities in the home or in the community.

local Alzheimer’s Society branches. www.dementiawebessex.org.uk For more information on dementia, dementia care and choosing a dementia care home, call this Directory’s independent advice line on 0800 38 92 077 provided by FirstStop Advice.

The End of Life Care Strategy Although the subject of dying is often painful to contemplate and as a society we find it hard to discuss, the way care professionals approach the process is incredibly important for the client, their family and carers. The Department of Health has published a Strategy for every organisation

involved in providing end of life care. Each will be expected to adopt an overall coordination process, such as the Gold Standards Framework, whilst developing the best possible outcome for clients. Those being cared for will have the opportunity to discuss their personal needs and preferences Continued on page 44 >>

Residential dementia care checklist Things to look for in care homes and care homes with nursing specialising in dementia. Residents The best indication of a good home is that the residents appear happy and responsive. • • • • •

Are residents involved in activities or chatting? Are residents clean and comfortably dressed? Do they seem alert and interested? Do they talk to you as you walk round? Are they encouraged to do as much for themselves as they can? Can you see any examples of this?

Access If the person with dementia needs or is likely to need equipment or adaptations you may want to check whether: • The corridors and toilets are wide enough for a walking frame or wheelchair. • There are suitably adapted toilets and baths. • There are ramps or a lift. • There is adequate signage and cues for different parts of the home such as dining room and bathroom.

Bedrooms You may want to find out whether the person with dementia can have a single room and whether: • Residents are encouraged to bring in some of their own furniture and possessions to increase familiarity. • The bedrooms are bright and pleasant. • Residents can go to their rooms when they wish to be alone. • Residents are able to keep pets in their room or in other areas of the home. • Staff respect the right to privacy and knock on bedroom doors.

Toilets Getting to the toilet in time can sometimes be a problem as dementia progresses. • Are there enough toilets within easy reach of the bedrooms and living areas? • Are staff trained to spot the signs when someone needs to go to the toilet? • Are staff cheerful and tactful about helping residents use the toilet and changing them if they are incontinent?

Living areas Look to see whether chairs are arranged in groups to encourage talking rather than placed in a circle round the outside of the room. • Is there a TV or radio left on when no one is watching or listening? • Is there more than one room where residents can sit or where they can be quiet or see visitors? • Is there a garden where residents can walk safely?

Health You will want to know what happens if residents are unwell or need medication. • Which doctor or doctors can residents see?

yN

© 2013 Care Choices Ltd

• Can a relative stay overnight if a resident is unwell? • What happens if residents need help with taking medication? • Are changes in medication discussed with the family carers?

visitors You will want to make sure that there is good communication between relatives and the home and that phone calls and visits are encouraged. • Are visitors welcomed at any time? • Are visitors encouraged to take residents out or join them for a meal? • Are children made to feel at home? • Are relatives involved in care planning and the general life of the home?

Activities Residents should be stimulated without feeling stressed. • Are there opportunities for residents to help staff with small tasks if they wish? • Are the activities individualised and people’s likes/dislikes recorded in care plans? • Are activities available each day? • Are residents left to sit in front of the TV? • Are reminiscence activities available? • Are residents able to compile memory boxes?

Staff It is important to note whether staff seem friendly and caring towards residents and whether they treat residents with respect. • Do they have any training and experience in dementia care? • Do they make time to sit and chat to residents or talk to them while they are helping them with physical tasks such as washing and dressing? • Do they know about residents’ backgrounds, habits and interests? • Will the person with dementia have a member of staff particularly responsible for their care? • Is there a member of staff you can talk to about your own worries about the person with dementia?

Manager/head of home A manager who is caring as well as efficient can make all the difference to a home. • Does the manager have a friendly manner with staff and residents? • Do they answer your questions openly and seem to understand your concerns? • Do they have a knowledge of dementia and can they deal with difficulties that may arise in an understanding way? • Is there a full assessment at home before a resident is admitted? • Does each resident have a care plan and are their needs regularly reviewed? • Is the family carer consulted about the care plan and about any proposed changes to it?

The End of Life Care Strategy continued with professionals who will be supporting them. These will be recorded in a care plan so that every supporting service will be aware of the client’s wishes. All health and social care staff must be trained in communication regarding end of life care and will be trained accordingly in assessing the needs of

clients and carers. Despite general reluctance to broach this sensitive area, it is worthwhile asking potential care providers their approach to end of life care and whether they are following national strategies for implementing best practice.

Learning disability The Government has indicated that services for people with disabilities should promote the following key principles: • Respect people’s rights. • Actively promote people’s independence. • Ensure that people have and are able to make choices in all areas of their lives. • Create opportunities for people to be included rather than separated from society. In Essex, if you are assessed as needing support the local authority will help you access community support services. These can include help in the home, adaptations and equipment, holidays and even a care home place, if appropriate. For people looking to move out of their family home, there are a number of options that could be explored before considering residential care. Some people may be able to have their own flat with support coming into their home. There is also the option of supported living, where someone can share a property with one or more other people with support provided for all. These can give great independence and choice. A good quality, care home can also help to promote independence and can be a step towards more independent living for some people who may initially require more support. There are other alternatives too such as

Adult Placement or Shared Ownership schemes that could be considered and these can be set up through a social care practitioner from the local authority’s Adult Learning Disability Teams. If residential care is the best option for your care and support needs check a number of points. • Is the provision in accordance with the current standards? • Is care assessed on dependency and number of residents? • Does the home have close links with the local authority’s Adult Social Care service?

Physical disability If you have a physical disability you may need support on a daily basis. There are many organisations to help people aged between 18 and 64 with a physical disability or sensory impairment to maintain their independence by living in their own homes and communities. If you have a physical disability or a long term illness, there are a range of services, support and advice to help you live as independently as possible in your own home. This might include getting equipment to adapt your home, or receiving care in your own home. See page 10 for information on keeping your independence as it may be able to help you maximise your independence. If you are eligible for local authority funding you may receive a personal budget or direct payment to enable you to purchase your care and support according to your assessed needs. For more information on self-directed support, personal budgets and direct payments please see pages 50-51.

Mental health When someone is worried about their mental health they will usually visit their GP who may refer them to a specialist mental health service. In Essex this is provided by the North Essex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (NEPFT) and the South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (SEPT). Essex County Council has partnership agreements with the Trusts to provide social care for adults of working age who have mental health needs to help them make the most out of their lives. The Trusts also provide mental health services for older adults and for young people through separate agreements with the County Council.

Support is provided to help manage everyday living; organise activities, employment and training to build self-confidence; and give encouragement to become part of the local community and be more independent. There is increased demand for home care for people with mental health problems arising from greater use of supported living instead of care home placements. This can be funded through an individual’s Personal Budget if they are assessed as eligible for social care support. For more information on supported living see page 44. For more information on personal budgets see page 51.

What will I have to pay for my care? Whether or not you have to pay towards your care will depend on your financial situation and your level of need. Essex County Council’s Adult Social Care department will undertake an assessment of both your needs and finances to understand what you may be required to pay and any assistance they may be able to give. Do you have more than £23,250 in capital and savings?

• A child under 18 who is yours or is your responsibility, or • A lone parent who is your estranged or divorced partner. Essex County Council’s Adult Social Care department also has discretion to ignore the value of your former home in other limited circumstances such as if a former carer of yours still lives there. Seek independent advice if you feel this may apply.

The value of your home (or former home) is included in the assessment of your capital unless it is still occupied by: • Your spouse or partner or civil partner, or • A relative of yours who is 60 or over or incapacitated, or If you dont have more than £23,250 in capital and savings: Adult Social Care may contribute financially towards your care costs after they have carried out an assessment of your care needs. How much? To work out how much they may pay, you must ask Essex Social Services’ Adult Social Care for a care needs assessment. This will define your care needs and how they will be best met. Adult Social Care will also assess your financial situation, which will determine how much you may have to pay and how much they may have to pay. Your choice of care provider will be limited to those that accept Adult Social Care’s funding level. More expensive care homes will expect

you to arrange a third party payment to ‘top-up’ the difference. You are not permitted to pay this yourself if your capital is below £23,250. For more information on third party top ups, see page 47. If your capital is less than £14,250 and the provider you choose charges fees that are within Adult Social Care’s funding rate, your contribution will be assessed only on your income. Normally all your income would be taken towards the fees except £23.50 you are allowed to keep back as a personal expenses allowance. The income of your spouse or partner is ignored as is the value of any savings held in their name. With capital between £14,250 and £23,250 you will also be expected to contribute £1 per week for every £250 you have above £14,250.

choose any one you wish that you feel will meet your care and support needs. If, apart from your property, your savings are less than £23,250 and you have been assessed as needing a care home, Adult Social Care can help with the fees for the first twelve weeks. After this time, any money from Adult Social Care will be regarded as a loan and will need to be repaid once your house is sold. This is covered in greater detail on page 48.

Consider claiming benefits

Remember:

• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (for those under State Pension age – this used to be age 60 for women and 65 for men but from April 2010 changes were introduced to include a gradual rise in women’s State Pension age over a number of years, to equal the State Pension age to 65 for both men and women).

• If your spouse or partner still lives at home, any income and savings in their name only will not be included in the financial assessment. • If you have a private pension and your partner still lives at home, only half the pension will be taken into account in the financial assessment if you pay the other half to your partner. • Your assessment will be made up of two parts, a care element and a financial element. The care assessment is essential if you want Adult Social Care to assist with the first twelve weeks funding or if there is a chance that your capital might deplete to the level where you would qualify for their funding.

• Pension Guarantee Credit and severe disability addition (for those over women’s State Pension age – previously 60 for both men and women). • Pension Savings Credit (for those aged 65 or over). • Attendance Allowance, worth £51.85 or £77.45 per week depending on your care needs.

• A care home with nursing will generally be more expensive than a care home offering personal care only.

• Disability Living Allowance, depending on care and mobility needs. Care needs paid at three rates; £20.55, £51.85 and £77.45 and mobility needs paid at two rates: £20.55 and £54.05.

Please note: Attendance Allowance and the care component of Disability Living Allowance are only payable when you are assessed to pay the full cost

of your care or when you have a deferred payment agreement. Neither benefit is means-tested or taxable.

Third party payments (top-up) If your care is funded by Essex County Council and you choose a care home that costs more than the rate Adult Social Care usually pays for a person with your needs, someone will have to make up the difference. This extra payment is often referred to as a ‘top-up’ or ‘third party top-up’. The third party top-up fee will always be the difference between the care home fees and the Council’s contract rate – Adult Social Care will be able to tell you what this is for your area. If the topup is not paid regularly, you may be asked to move to accommodation provided at the contract rate. Except in limited circumstances, the law states that you or your spouse are not allowed to make this additional payment yourself. The responsibility for this often falls to a member of your family or a benevolent sponsor such as a charity. Once this person or organisation has been confirmed, they must sign an agreement formalising the arrangement. Third party payments are only appropriate if the person providing the ‘top-up’ is confident of their on-going ability to pay. It is important that whoever agrees to do this for you is made aware that the amount could increase in the future and they must

be confident any increases will be met. Should payments stop for any reason, you should seek help and advice from Adult Social Care immediately. The person that agrees to pay the third party payment will enter into a contract with Essex County Council. This contract will be between them and the council not you and the council. As the financing of care is a complex area, you are advised to seek professional advice about paying for care. Contact this Directory’s free advice line, in association with FirstStop Advice on 0800 31 02 011 or by visiting its website www.firststopadvice.org.uk. Assuming you will be moving into care, you may be entitled to some of the following financial assistance and support even if you are regarded as self-funding.

Twelve-week property disregard If your former home is included in your financial assessment but your other capital is less than £23,250, and your income is not enough to meet

your care home fees, Adult Social Care will help with the cost during the first twelve weeks of permanent care provided they agree that care is needed.

Deferred Payment Agreements After the twelve-week property disregard period, any financial help from Adult Social Care will be charged against the value of your home and recovered once your house has been sold. However, local authorities have discretion as to whether to enter into an agreement in individual cases and they may limit how much they will pay. If you enter into a deferred payment agreement it may affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits, e.g. Pension Credit, if your property is not seen to be on

the market and becomes treated as capital by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).

Council Tax Exemption If your property is left empty when you move into a care home you should receive full exemption from

Council Tax until such time as it is sold.

Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance Attendance Allowance is paid by the Department for Work and Pensions, for those people aged 65 or over, who have personal care or supervision needs, or who have a terminal illness. It is paid at two rates: the lower rate of £51.85 per week paid for those needing care or supervision by day or night, and a higher rate of £77.45 per week for those with care or supervision needs both during the day and night.

Disability Living Allowance is paid by the Department for Work and Pensions, for people under the age of 65 who have personal care or supervision needs, have a terminal illness, or have difficulty walking. It is made up of a care component (paid at three different rates with a top rate of £77.45 per week) and a mobility component (paid at two different rates with a top rate of £54.05 per week).

Pension Credit If you receive Pension Credit and qualify for Attendance Allowance you will also be entitled to the Severe Disability Addition currently £58.20 per week. Your property, if on the market, is disregarded capital for Pension Credit purposes. Please note: If you are not paying the full cost of your care home fees you cannot receive payment of Attendance Allowance or the care component of Disability Living Allowance. However if you still

own your former home, and the local authority is helping you with your care home fees under a deferred payment agreement, you may still be entitled to payment of these benefits. This is because the money paid by the local authority will eventually be repaid from the proceeds of sale once the property is sold These rates are relevant from April 2012 - April 2013. Both of these benefits are non-taxable and nonmeans tested, which usually means that your income and capital will not affect your eligibility for claiming.

NHS Nursing Care Contribution Whether you are a temporary or permanent resident, if you live in a care home that provides nursing care you may be entitled to a non-meanstested NHS Nursing Care Contribution (currently

48

£108.70 per week for the standard rate and £149.60 per week for the higher rate) towards the cost of your nursing care. This is paid by the NHS directly to the home.

NHS Continuing Care Funding You can receive continuing healthcare services in any setting, including your own home or in a care home. The NHS will pay if you need healthcare from a community nurse or a therapist as well as personal care to help you at home like having a bath or dressing. If you live in a care home with nursing (traditionally called a ‘nursing home’), you may qualify for the full cost of your care home fees, including board and accommodation, under the National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare. Whether you might be eligible for NHS Continuing Care funding will be considered when you have your care needs assessment.

Section 117 Aftercare If you have a mental health condition and you have been admitted to hospital under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act 1983 for assessment and treatment your care home fees could be fully funded under Section 117 aftercare. This is often provided by or jointly with the local authority. Understanding your rights before moving into

care is essential. There are a number of financial products and specialist companies who may be able to help. It is important to seek advice before committing yourself. Contact this Directory’s free advice line, in association with FirstStop Advice on 0800 31 02 011 or by visiting its website www.firststopadvice.org.uk.

Am I entitled to any other benefits? Winter Fuel Payment is a non means-tested annual amount paid if you are aged 60 years or over. The amount paid will depend on your circumstances being either £100 or £200 with an addition of either £50 or £100 if you were aged 80 years or over. If you live in a care home and are not in receipt of

Pension Credit you should get £100 aged 60 to 79 and £150 if you are aged 80 years or over. For information on Attendance Allowance and Disability Living Allowance, please see pages 47-48. For information on Carer’s Allowance, please see page 7.

What funding options are available to me if I pay for my own care? If you do not qualify for council funding, or if for any reason you choose not to be financially supported by the council, you can arrange and pay for your own care. The cost will depend on how much care you need, the type of care provision you are receiving

(home care or care home) and where you live. If you are meeting the cost from your savings, you are advised to get specialist financial advice to help you to use your money to its best effect and avoid running out of money for other essential living costs.

Equity release Funding options for home care can include Equity Release Schemes if you own your own home. There are two different types of scheme: • a lifetime mortgage which is based on raising a loan against the value of your home, and this is eventually repaid when you move out or die; • a home reversion plan, under which all or part of your property is sold to a home reversion company.

Most reputable equity release schemes carry a guarantee that any accruing loan will never exceed the property’s value and you would be allowed to continue living in your home. Depending on your circumstances, it might be better to take a regular income or ‘draw down’ facility rather than a large lump sum on which you will pay interest from the outset. Alternatively, a single lump sum might be released to buy a care fee payment plan which could provide regular income to pay for home care.

Immediate Need Care Fee Payment Plans In exchange for a lump sum, these plans are designed specifically to provide a guaranteed regular income for those people who need care. It is essential to seek independent advice when considering equity release or immediate need care fee payment plans from a qualified adviser who will talk to you about your circumstances and assess whether these financial products are the right option for you and if so, provide you with comprehensive advice that meets your needs and circumstances. If these aren’t right for you the adviser should be able to help you consider what your other options might be. It is important to seek advice before committing yourself to any financial products. Contact this Directory’s free advice line, in association with

FirstStop Advice on 0800 31 02 011 or by visiting its website www.firststopadvice.org.uk.

Personalisation Personalisation gives care seekers who are funded by the local authority more control of the services they receive and how money assessed to meet their

care needs is spent. Personalisation is administered via self-directed support and money can be provided in a personal budget.

Self-directed support Self-directed support is designed to help people take control of their own social care budgets, manage their own support and choose the services that suit them best using the money from different areas more flexibly. The person is at the centre of the planning process as they are best placed to understand their own needs. Self-directed support is a relatively new way to provide adult social care. As the name suggests, self-directed support allows those eligible for social care funding from the local authority to design and tailor their own support package to meet unique and special requirements.

50

Whereas previously you may have been limited to traditional options such as visits to a day care centre, or home help, self-directed support offers many more options. Perhaps you would like to keep your independence by funding transport to the shops every week, or to visit a relative who you may have lost touch with otherwise? Or maybe you would have a better quality of life if you could attend a local college course to learn a new skill, or even have some help in getting out and about to keep active. Self-directed support provides you with a personal budget that can be used to access this wide array of services.

Helping you to Choose and Pay for Care • 0800 38 92 077 Advice for older people


Personal budgets If you wish to take self-directed support you can receive help with filling out an assessment form, completing a financial assessment, writing a support plan, finding the services or activities which are fitting and, if needed, help with the management of a personal budget. There are three options for managing a budget: • Personal Budget Direct – This option allows you to manage the budget and choose where, when and how to purchase goods and services. You will need to shop around and make comparisons between the different goods and services available. You could ask a third party to look after the budget for you. This could be a family member or friend, an independent broker or an advocacy and support organisation.

• Personal Budget Managed - Essex County Council looks after the budget for you and provides goods or services that you would like. You will only be able to choose from care services such as care and support at home, respite care, meals services or day services. • Personal Budget Administered – If you are unable to manage the budget due to incapacity, a third party could undertake this role and responsibility. There are a range of options, such as an independent service broker or independent service provider. It is also possible to have the money managed using a trust or an individual service fund. Whatever method is right for you, the money will still be used to obtain the goods and services set out in the support plan.

Taking the Right to Control Essex is currently running an initiative called the ‘Right to Control’, which is designed to give disabled people more choice and control over the support they receive from six different sources. It’s a legal right which means that eligible individuals will be able to combine their support and decide how best to spend the funding they receive to meet their needs. The six funding streams which are included are: • Access to Work • Adult Social Care • Disabled Facilities Grant • Independent Living Fund (ILF)

• Supporting People • Work Choice These streams are now working closely together to join up support and share information to give customers more choice and control over their support. If you are eligible for the ‘Right to Control’, you will be told about this when you are assessed or reviewed by any of the participating public bodies (those administering the six funding streams). Right to Control only applies in the Essex County Council area, and does not apply to residents of Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock unitary authorities.

Personal assistants A personal assistant (PA) is someone who is employed to assist an individual with their care and support needs. If you are funded by Essex County Council, choose to receive a cash payment and employ your own personal assistant, you will have the responsibility of being an employer. Essex County Council will refer you to ILA Ltd for independent advice, support and information about all aspects of employing staff. See page 53

for more information. You cannot use a cash payment to employ a partner or anyone living in the same household, except in special circumstances. This will need to be agreed by Essex County Council. If you are planning to employ a personal assistant, on-going support may be required to manage the cash payment, or the support of a payroll service; ecdp pass can provide this help. See page 53 for more information.

What happens if I want to purchase PA support from a care agency? If you intend to purchase support directly from a care agency, Essex County Council staff will be able to provide guidance of where to purchase the support from. When purchasing support from an

agency, you should make sure that the agency is registered with the Care Quality Commission. For more information on CQC see page 55.

Essential information Looking for care or support advice? Finding appropriate care for an adult or older person can be difficult and daunting. This publication has been designed to help you to identify relevant care providers in your preferred region and to give you a starting point in your search. At Care Choices (the publishers), we recognise that there is a need for further information covering for example, available facilities, quality assurance and staff training. In addition, it is imperative that your personal needs, preferences, interests, likes and dislikes are all taken into account when choosing care. The checklist on page 39 lists important questions to ask when visiting a care home. It would, of course, be more convenient to have questions answered in advance. If you are looking for specific care options a personalised report can be generated for you

providing details of all care homes or housing with care schemes that meet you criteria with supplementary information about choosing and funding. One call to our free helpline 0800 38 92 077, provided by FirstStop Advice, will enable us to advise and guide you on your care journey as well as build a profile of exactly what type of care you’re looking for, while taking into account your personal needs and interests.

You will receive a comprehensive list of all relevant providers and we arrange for them to send their brochure directly to your address.

Comments, compliments, concerns and complaints All organisations need to know how they are performing. They welcome your feedback on their service whether they are general comments, compliments or complaints. Feel free to tell them what you think and your comments can be used constructively to improve the service. If you do need to make a complaint you should feel able to complain about any aspect of your care that affects your happiness or comfort. This could be about the way you are treated by a staff member or care worker or the quality of the food you are served. You can also make comments and suggestions about possible improvements to your surroundings and the services provided. Making a complaint should not be difficult for you. Providers are required under essential standards of quality and safety to have a simple and easy to use complaints procedure that they will be happy to give you. If you are concerned about the care that you, a friend or a relative is receiving, it makes sense to speak to the manager before you take any further action. The problem may be resolved quite easily once they are made aware of it. However, if you need to make a formal complaint, you should initially contact the registered owners of the service. They have a duty to respond to any complaints made. If you fund your own social care you have access to an independent complaints review service provided by the Local Government Ombudsman

(LGO) if you are dissatisfied with the response you get from the care provider. If your complaint is about a breach of regulations, contact your local office of the Care Quality Commission, see below for contact details. If Adult Social Care has arranged and funded your care, you can contact either your social worker or the adult social care complaints team. There is a single complaints procedure for Adult Social Care Services and the NHS and the main principles are: • To take a more flexible approach towards handling individual complaints, which means involving the customer in determining the most appropriate outcomes to resolve their complaint. • To ensure the proportionate handling of the complaint in relation to the issues raised; the primary purpose will be to resolve complaints about Adult Social Care in a speedy and efficient manner, that is accessible, fair, flexible and without blame. • To make sure that people’s experience help improve services.

Inspection and registration of care services The Care Quality Commission (CQC) registers, inspects and reviews all adult social care and healthcare services in England in the public, private and voluntary sectors. This includes care homes, care homes with nursing, home care agencies and NHS services, amongst others. CQC holds and publishes up to date information about the compliance of adult social care providers with essential standards of safety and quality. Following an inspection, each care home and home care agency is given a report of how it rates against national essential standards of quality and safety. Each service’s report can be seen on the CQC website: www.cqc.org.uk The focus of an inspection is on the standards of care that people who use the service receive and whether they are happy with their care. Virtually all inspections are unannounced.

For care homes and care homes with nursing, the inspectors look at outcomes which place an emphasis on what people who use services should experience. Since 1st October 2010, all care providers must be registered under a new system, introduced by the Health and Social Care Act 2008, which brings adult social care, independent healthcare and the NHS under a single set of essential standards of quality and safety. For any enquiries or to register a concern or a complaint, contact CQC by telephone: 03000 616161 or by email: enquiries@cqc.org.uk The Care Quality Commission Citygate Gallowgate, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4PA

Healthwatch England Healthwatch England is a new national voice for people who use health and social care services. It is the new, independent consumer champion for health and social care in England and its job is to argue for the consumer interest of all those who use health and social care services. Local Healthwatch organisations will be set up from April 2013 and have the power to enter and

view services, influence how services are set up, produce reports to influence the way services are designed and delivered, provide information, advice and support about local services and pass on information and recommendations to Healthwatch England and the Care Quality Commission. To find out more about Healthwatch and to find your local Healthwatch visit www.healthwatch.co.uk.

Worried about abuse? ‘Abuse is a violation of an individual’s human and civil rights by any other person or persons. It may involve a single or repeated act or omission, occurring within a personal or closed relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm to a vulnerable adult.’ (‘No Secrets’ – Department of Health 2000.)

The purpose of the safeguarding system in Essex is to prevent abuse before it happens, to stop abuse as soon as it is known about, to prevent further abuse for victims and to help vulnerable people. If you want advice about safeguarding, are worried about or want to report the abuse of an adult call: AskSAL (The Safeguarding Adult Line) Tel: 08452 66 66 63. The AskSAL helpline was set up to give advice to people of Essex who are concerned about themselves or somebody they know. It is a partnership project between the Southend, Essex and Thurrock Safeguarding Adults Boards and Essex County Council.

Independent Safeguarding Authority The Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) has been created to help prevent unsuitable people from working with children and vulnerable adults by enforcing the new Vetting and Barring Scheme (VBS). Although the Vetting and Barring Scheme is currently halted whilst the Government undertakes a review, new safeguarding regulations introduced in October 2009 continue to apply. These include: • A person who is barred from working with children or vulnerable adults will be breaking the law if they work or volunteer, or try to work or volunteer with those groups. • An organisation which knowingly employs someone who is barred to work with those groups will also be breaking the law. If an organisation works with children or vulnerable adults, or someone personally employs a person to work with children or vulnerable adults, and a member of staff or a volunteer is dismissed

56

because they have harmed a child or vulnerable adult, or would have been dismissed if they had not left, the Independent Safeguarding Authority must be informed. Anyone working with children or vulnerable adults is required to have a criminal record check by the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB). There are two types of CRB check a standard check and an enhanced check. In October 2009, the right to ask for an enhanced CRB disclosure was extended to all those who employ or use volunteers in types of activity called ‘Regulated Activity’. This right remains and employers should continue to carry out appropriate pre-recruitment checks, including CRB checks where appropriate or required by law. In December 2012, the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) will merge into the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). This new organisation will provide a joined up, seamless service to combine the criminal records and barring functions. Further changes

Independent Safeguarding Authority continued will come into force during 2013 and 2014. At time of going to print there are no website or contact details for the DBS. Until the DBS begins operating, the Independent Safeguarding Authority will continue to carry out its work as an independent decision-making body as

well as continuing to maintain the barred lists. They will also continue to accept referrals, full guidance on which is available at: www.isa-gov.org.uk. For further information, please contact the Vetting and Barring Scheme contact centre on 0300 123 1111.

Can an advocate help me? Advocates and advocacy schemes help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need. If you

need help to express what you want from your social care services, you can get an advocate to support you.

Would I need to use a solicitor when looking for care? A solicitor can give you impartial advice about wills, making gifts, estate planning and Powers of Attorney. Some can also offer guidance on immediate and long-term care plans, ensuring (if applicable) the NHS has made the correct contribution to your fees. Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) allow you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions about your personal welfare, including healthcare and consent to medical treatment, and/or your property and financial affairs. An LPA is only valid once registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. It allows for a person of your choice to make decisions on your behalf at a time when you may be unable. The Court of Protection can issue Orders directing the management of a person’s property and financial affairs if they are incapable of managing their own affairs should they not have a LPA. The Court procedure is presently very slow and the fees are quite expensive so preparing a LPA is always advisable, providing you have somebody sufficiently trustworthy to appoint as your attorney. An ‘advance directive’ allows you to communicate your wishes in respect of future medical treatment but it is not legally binding. You may instead wish to make a living will,

properly known as an ‘advance decision’ setting out treatment that you do not want to receive in specified circumstances, which would legally have to be followed, even if you die as a result. Any proposed Gift out of your estate needs careful consideration of the benefits, risks and implications, particularly on any future liability for care costs or tax liability. If you need long term care, whether you remain in your own home or move into sheltered or residential care, you may qualify for financial assistance in the form of social care and NHS-funded care and welfare benefits. A solicitor may be able to advise you. If you don’t have your own solicitor, ask family or friends for their recommendations. Contact several firms, explain your situation and ask for an estimate of cost and an idea of time scales involved. Many firms will make home visits if necessary and will adapt their communications to meet your needs. It’s important to find a solicitor who specialises in this area of the law. The Citizen’s Advice Bureau offers an advice service and will be able to recommend solicitors in your area.

An introduction to Southend-on-Sea Welcome to this year’s edition of the Southend Care Services Directory. I hope you will find it a valuable resource whether you want to know about the care and support services that are available for yourself or someone you care for. Our commitment Southend Borough Council’s Adult and Community Services Department is responsible for planning and commissioning a wide range of services for adults who live in the borough. We are committed to helping people remain as independent as possible and ensuring that people who need care or support services have as much choice and control about the services they need. Regardless of whether you pay for services yourself or if they are paid for by the local authority we will do our best to help you find the support that suits your circumstances.

them can manage on their behalf. We have established an Access Team that can respond quickly to requests for help and offers advice about accessing services, and we have strengthened our homecare re-ablement services to help older people regain the confidence and skills that they may have lost through accident or illness. Contact us You are welcome to contact Southend Borough Council for advice and support and where appropriate we can refer you to one of our social care teams. I do hope that you find this Directory useful in helping you and your family make informed decisions about the choices available to you in Southend and we are grateful to Care Choices who have produced this Directory at no cost to Southend Borough Council.

Partnership working We work closely with the care providers in Southend to ensure that they provide a quality service to our residents. We encourage prospective residents or users of services to read the reports from the Care Quality Commission which are available on their website www. cqc.org.uk. We also encourage people to use the checklists of questions to be found in this Directory (see pages 10, 39 and 43). The challenge for us all – whether we provide services, use or commission them is to ensure that good quality care with dignity and choice is the norm. We will continue to work with the care providers to that end.

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council contact details Opening hours: Monday to Friday 8:45am - 5:15pm

Personalisation Personalisation aims to enable people to have and be responsible for their own Personal Budget and to have independent and fulfilling lives and to exercise the level of choice and control they want.

Helping you to Choose and Pay for Care • 0800 38 92 077 Advice for older people


An introduction from thurrock Council Thurrock Council is committed to developing working partnerships with the private and independent sector care homes and home care agencies across the borough. Councillors in Thurrock recognise the need for people to choose their own care home - though many will choose to remain in the local area. The following homes, provided by the public, private and voluntary sectors, are located within the borough. They are subject to registration and regulation by the Care Quality Commission. In addition, there are five providers of home care that are commissioned by the Council. One is a Council-provided service that is for reablement and the four other providers are from the voluntary, charitable and independent sectors who work in geographical patches. The Council is working closely with those providers to implement home care that delivers a person- centred service. Financial aid towards the cost of care is subject

to a Community Care Assessment through the People Services Directorate, this is then presented to the Adult Social care Resource Allocation Panel for decision. Thurrock’s assessment teams are based in Civic Offices in Grays, Basildon Hospital and the Older People’s Mental Health Team in Bridge Road. There are several care homes for older people and disabled adults and some also provide nursing care. A number of homes are registered to care for people with dementia.

Our passion is for innovative, high quality care with well-motivated staff teams responsive to the needs of older people. Preserving dignity is at the heart of everything we do. Our Ethos is that Care Homes are for living in and can be a ‘hive of activity’ or a ‘sea of tranquillity’ depending on the needs of those in our care. We provide residential care for those who need that extra support each day and we offer specialist care for those living with dementia throughout

our LIFE programme (Living in Full Engagement). It is a philosophy with an innovative, creative and positive approach. We have homes across Essex and if you would like to know more please contact us on the number below or visit our website for further details.
