Introduction Welcome to this edition of the independent Kent Care Services Directory, which contains information for adults looking for care or support within the county, whether they are paying for it themselves or receiving support from the council. Staying as independent as possible is important to everybody. This Directory contains information about the care and support services available to enable you to do this when remaining at home, moving into a housing with care scheme, or within a care home or care home with nursing. Your first step to accessing services is to arrange an assessment with your local Adult Social Care department to establish your specific needs. This is free, irrespective of your income and available to all. More details are provided on page 16. The assessment will determine whether you are eligible for financial support via a Personal Budget, which may allow you to buy in your own support and take control of your situation. Often called ‘personalisation’, this model of social care puts you at the centre of the process. Alternatively, your circumstances may mean you are classed as a ‘self-funder’, with the means to pay for your care. This is discussed on page 26 for those paying for care at home and 54 for those paying for residential care.

Support or care to remain living in your own home may be the option that best suits your circumstances. Ideas to make life easier at home are explored, starting on page 12 and a list of local home care providers begins on page 27. If you are unable to remain at home, you may want to consider a housing with care scheme (see page 42) or residential care. Comprehensive lists of care homes and care homes with nursing in Kent start on page 60. In this Directory, you will also find important information about care decisions, including finding care in another county, making a comment or complaint about a service and how solicitors can help you.

These may include: • information and advice; • equipment to help you stay safe at home, such as grab rails and bathing equipment; • short-term intensive support in your home called ‘enablement’; • activities during the day; • support for carers; or • short breaks (called ‘respite’) for you or someone who cares for you.

Helping you to stay independent Services developed in partnership with the voluntary sector

those attending as they allow for a regular break from caring.

In Kent, there is a number of voluntary and community organisations that offer preventative care services. These are a vital form of support for many thousands of vulnerable people across the county and help to maintain independence, social inclusion, and delay or avoid the need for more statutory interventions.

To find out more about what is available locally, visit the Kent County Council website www.kent.gov.uk and type ‘day centres’ into the search box.

Examples include: • day services, lunch clubs and social groups; • befriending, visiting and telephone contact services; • support schemes to help people being discharged from hospital; • support for carers; • respite care; • advocacy, information and advice; and • handyperson schemes.

Day care centres Many people can feel lonely or isolated without an opportunity to fill their days with meaningful activities. Research has shown that one way to alleviate loneliness and promote wellbeing and independence is to provide regular social contact and a focus for activities.

Meals on wheels Some services are able to deliver frozen or freshly-cooked meals to your home. Frozen meals can be delivered in bulk and kept in your freezer until required, while hot meals should be eaten immediately. A number of commercial companies and charitable organisations provide this service throughout Kent. Your local Age UK (contact details are on page 116) may also have a meals delivery service. apetito Tel: 01225 560136 Web: www.apetito.co.uk Oakhouse Foods Tel: 0333 370 6700 Web: www.oakhousefoods.co.uk Wiltshire Farm Foods Tel: 0800 077 3100 Web: www.wiltshirefarmfoods.com

Day care centres give people the chance to change their routine, meet new people, take up an activity or receive specialist services such as chiropody or hairdressing. There is a wide variety around the county, catering for older people, people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and dementia. Centres can be as important for carers as Visit www.carechoices.co.uk for further assistance with your search for care

Home Improvement Agencies (HIAs)

HIAs are local organisations funded and supported by local and central government. They pride themselves in working professionally and sensitively with older and disabled homeowners, providing advice, support and assistance to help them repair, improve, maintain or adapt their homes to meet their changing needs. Most HIAs provide three main services, including: information and advice on repairs or adaptations you may be considering–this usually entails a visit to your home and is often free; a handyperson service for small jobs and repairs–typically, the HIA will employ its own handypersons, and charge you an hourly rate for their services; and a home adaptations service for more major works. The HIA will work with you to specify the adaptations needed, and they will normally offer to get estimates from one or more of their regular contractors. Subject to your acceptance, the HIA will then offer to manage the works contract for you for an agreed fee.

Specialist equipment There is a range of equipment available to make life easier and to improve safety and independence in the home, such as stair rails, raised toilet seats and shower stools. If you would like more information, please contact Adult Social Care. The Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) This is a national charity providing impartial advice, information and training on independent living. Simple electronic aids can be borrowed from them for free for up to two weeks including: gadgets which remind you of things you need to do; safety alarms and sensors; magnifiers and telephones with big buttons. A small deposit is required. DLF factsheets provide general advice on topics such as features to look for when choosing from a wide range of items of daily living equipment. These can be viewed and downloaded from www.dlf.org.uk or call 0300 999 0004.

Telecare Telecare is equipment that can detect falls, inactivity, smoke, flooding, gas or extreme temperatures in the home. Sensors, when activated, will connect to a response centre where trained operators will contact the individual through their home unit. They will take the most appropriate action, such as contacting a nominated responder, family member, carer, neighbour, doctor or the emergency services. Telecare can allow users to regain confidence in their homes and remain independent. Relatives and carers are also reassured, safe in the knowledge that should an incident occur, they will know about it. Some devices (known as telehealth) can also help monitor particular health conditions and reduce the need for hospital admission.

You can buy telecare and assistive technology from private companies and organisations or, if you’re eligible through an assessment (see page 16), Kent County Council may be able to provide it for you. Useful websites www.asksara.dlf.org.uk www.livingmadeeasy.org.uk www.kent.gov.uk/alarms

Where do I start? The way councils provide services to eligible adults and their carers is called personalisation. This term is used to describe a number of ways in which eligible adults can receive a mixture of local authority and government money to pay for the care services they need without direct council involvement. If you approach the council for social care support, your needs and finances will be assessed (see below for information on assessments). If you have a carer, they can be involved and have their needs assessed too.

Your assessment If you appear to have care or support needs, you have a legal right to an assessment of your care needs and finances. Councils are statutorily obliged to provide this to you, regardless of whether you access their services. The assessment (which is free) will consider: • how you can best be supported to live as independently as possible; • your home and how you are coping in it; • your emotional wellbeing; • your diet; • any health and medical treatments you need; and • your financial status and any benefits you may be claiming. To arrange an assessment, contact Kent County Council on 03000 416161.

services you may be eligible for and who will pay for them. The council will give you more information on eligibility and the national eligibility criteria it uses at the time of your assessment. Information on paying for care can be found on page 26 if you are receiving home care and page 54 if you are moving into a care home.

Personal Budgets If you are eligible for support from the council, you may be given a Personal Budget. A Personal Budget is the amount of money that the council calculates it will cost to meet the support needs of eligible people. If you are eligible for a Personal Budget, the actual amount you receive will depend on your eligible needs and your finances. The money should be spent in line with a support plan that has been agreed by both you and the council and can be either a full or a partial contribution to such costs. You may also choose to pay for additional support on top of the budget. Any eventual contractual agreement for services is between you and your care provider, not the council. If you are eligible, a Personal Budget may be taken: • in the form of a Direct (cash) Payment, held directly by you or, where you lack capacity, by a ‘suitable person’; • by way of an account held and managed by the council in line with your wishes, or as an account placed with a third party (provider) and accessed by you in direct negotiation with the provider; or • as a mixture of the above.

Once Kent County Council has an understanding of your care and financial needs, the next stage is to determine what

16

Personal Budgets cannot currently be used to pay for residential care.

For assistance with finding care and support, call Care Choices on 0800 389 2077


Managing a Direct Payment If you are eligible for financial support from the council, you can choose to have a Direct Payment. Having a Direct Payment gives you choice and control over how you organise, buy and manage your care and support. It must be used to buy services that you are assessed as needing. In Kent, your Direct Payment can be paid to you via a Kent Card, which works like a debit card. Alternatively, you can open a bank account just for your Direct Payment to be paid into. For more information, contact the Direct Payment support team on 03000 413600 or visit www.kentdp.co.uk

needs to decide if you are eligible. If you are eligible, a enablement worker will support you for a limited period. Enablement helps people to learn or re-learn daily living skills. It is not about doing things for you, it’s about giving you the skills and confidence to do things for yourself. It can also mean that you do not start to depend on support that could cost you money. For example, a enablement worker could help you regain your confidence following a fall, or provide support that enables you to prepare a meal if there has been a change in circumstances that means you need to cook. The enablement service may also identify pieces of equipment that could support you to regain or maintain your independence for as long as you can.

Assessments from hospital If you have been admitted to hospital and you might need care on discharge, you may be referred to the discharge team for an assessment, which will take place on the ward. The team may be made up of social workers, carers’ officers, mental health workers and housing officers. Whatever services you need on discharge, Kent County Council will work with you, your family and carers to either restart services already in place prior to admission or to provide the appropriate services. Sometimes interim care packages are set up to facilitate your discharge and you will be reassessed by a community social worker within four to six weeks.

Enablement Enablement is an intensive short-term service that helps people regain skills and confidence, for example, after a fall or hospital stay. You will need to have an assessment of your care

Intermediate care This aims to give recovery and rehabilitation support to help people regain their independence when they come out of hospital or, just as importantly, prevent them going unnecessarily into hospital. Intermediate care can be provided in your own home or in a care home, depending on local policy and your specific needs. It can be provided by care staff, occupational therapy and physiotherapy, with additional support provided by the local GP surgery,

Visit www.carechoices.co.uk for further assistance with your search for care

17


social workers and community nurses. This combined resource helps people to regain their independence and feel confident in their ability to manage for themselves with any necessary additional support. Intermediate care, including any care home fees where relevant, is provided by the NHS and is free. It is usually limited to a maximum of six weeks. If, after this, you have ongoing care or support needs, the council will conduct an assessment and may help you to arrange any services you might need. There may be a charge for these services.

NHS Continuing Healthcare NHS Continuing Healthcare is a package of continuing care that is arranged and funded solely by the NHS. This is free of charge,

wherever it is delivered. NHS Continuing Healthcare support may be provided in a care home or care home with nursing or in a person’s own home. People eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare will have been assessed to have a ‘primary health need’ and are likely to have complex medical needs and substantial or intense ongoing care needs.

Personal health budgets A personal health budget is an amount of money to support a person’s identified health needs, planned and agreed between the person and their local NHS team. The aim is to enable people with long-term conditions and disabilities to have greater choice, flexibility and control over the healthcare and support they receive.

Services for carers Who is a carer? Carers regularly look after, help or support someone who wouldn’t be able to manage everyday life without their help. A carer doesn’t have to be living with the person they care for, and the help they give doesn’t have to be physical. The carer may be caring for a partner, another relative, a friend or a neighbour. For example, it may be someone who: • is over 60; • is living with dementia; • has a physical or learning disability, or a mental health condition; • has sight, hearing or communication difficulties;

18

• has a long-term health condition; or • misuses drugs or alcohol. They may be helping with: • personal care, such as washing and dressing; • going to the toilet, or dealing with incontinence; • getting about at home or outside; • practical help at home, keeping them company; or • emotional support or communicating.

regular unpaid support to someone who could not manage without their support has the right to have their own needs assessed, even if the person they care for has refused support services or an assessment of their own needs. A carer’s assessment is an opportunity for people to tell the council what they need as a carer, and to find out what support might be Respite at home available. The assessment is an essential first Home-based respite services give carers a step for carers to get the support they may break from their caring responsibilities. A need. It looks at: care worker can come in to look after the person they care for, so the carer can have • the care the carer provides and how this some time to themselves. The breaks could affects their life; be regular or just when needed. • any support they are getting now and what else would help; and Respite at home is considered to be a service • what they would like their support to achieve. The assessment can also give lots of information about other services that might help, and other ideas for support. The carer’s assessment will show if the carer qualifies for support from Adult Social Care. Visit www.kent.gov.uk/caringforothers for more information.

Carers’ Direct Payments The carer’s Direct Payment is a single payment that can be used towards the cost of something that will support carers in their caring role. For example, it could be used for leisure activities, education or training, or just to take a short break from caring. The amount a carer could get depends on their needs identified by their carer’s assessment. Visit www.kent.gov.uk/social-care-andhealth/care-and-support/caring-forother-people for more information.

for the person who is being cared for. If they have a Personal Budget (see page 16) for their own needs, they could use that money to pay for it. A financial assessment of the person being cared for will confirm whether they need to pay towards the cost of this service. Crossroads Care Crossroads Care can provide carers with a break from caring if they are providing care or support to a family member or friend who is ill, elderly or has a physical or learning disability. Web: www.carerskm.org Volcare Volcare provides a respite service between one day and two weeks for carers who provide full-time care to relatives in their own home.

Benefits Carers may want to explore whether they are entitled to Carer’s Allowance – currently £62.10 per week but this may change over the lifetime of this Directory. Carers may also qualify for Carer’s Premium or Carer’s Credit depending on their eligibility. The Government website, www.gov.uk has more information on benefits, including carers’ benefits. Alternatively, contact a local carers’ organisation which may be able to help undertake a benefit check.

There are various local voluntary organisations providing information, advice and support to carers.

Kent Carer’s Emergency Card The Kent Carer’s Emergency Card provides carers (over the age of 18) with peace of mind by enabling them to access emergency assistance around the clock. The card doesn’t contain any personal details, just a unique registration number and the telephone number of the 24-hour service. In an emergency, anyone can telephone the number on the card and quote the registration number. The contact centre uses this to access the carer’s pre-arranged emergency plan and puts it into action.

Care in your own home Carefully chosen home care with a good quality provider is an excellent way to retain your freedom and independence, whilst getting the help you need to stay happy and safe. It can offer the opportunity to stay at home, in your own familiar surroundings, and to retain a quality of life you might have feared lost.

looking at what will suit you best.

Why choose home care?

How home care can help you

Reasons for choosing home care can vary. Sometimes after a stay in hospital, someone might find they need some help whilst they recuperate. Others can find that a long-term condition or disability means they can no longer cope and they need a bit of help.

The level of home care provided can be tailored to meet your needs – from a visit once a day to a much greater amount of support.

After a stay in hospital someone may carry out an assessment of your situation to see if home care will benefit you. You, and your family if you like, will be fully involved in

Alternatively, you or those close to you might notice changes in your ability to manage the day-to-day things you normally cope with easily, like preparing meals or looking after yourself. If this happens, you can approach a home care agency for support.

Even those with quite significant and debilitating medical conditions can get skilled personal care that can enable them to stay in their own homes. Some agencies will provide live-in care, where a care worker will stay with you at home to support you throughout the day and night.

Finding the right support This Directory offers a telephone and website service allowing you to search by postcode or region for care homes, care homes with nursing and home care providers that meet your requirements across the country. Your search can be sent to you by post or email, or discussed with you over the telephone. If you are searching online, the results can be saved and emailed to others. You can also view an electronic version of this Directory on the site and have it read to you by using the ‘Browsealoud’ function. Whatever your care needs, this Directory and the Care Choices’ telephone and website service will be able to point you in the best direction, however you would like care information presented. Please call 0800 389 2077 or visit www.carechoices.co.uk The United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) requires its members to comply with a code of practice. This code includes a commitment to treat customers with dignity and respect and operate at a level above the legal minimum required in legislation. Social care regulations do not apply to cleaners, handymen or gardeners. However, some home care agencies are increasingly providing staff who can help meet these needs too.

The benefits of using a regulated agency include: • assessing your care needs and tailoring a plan to meet those needs; • advertising, interviewing and screening suitability of workers; • arranging necessary insurance cover; • providing training and development for care workers; • managing workers’ pay, including compliance with the National Minimum Wage; • managing employment relationships, including sickness, absence and disciplinary matters; and • managing health and safety issues. For further help with choosing an agency, use the checklist on page 25.

Living with dementia at home If you are concerned about persistent forgetfulness or memory difficulties, it is important to consult a GP. They can undertake an initial examination and refer you to a memory clinic for further investigation if necessary. The various types of support available to you and your carer are likely to involve NHS services, Adult Social Care and voluntary agencies. Some examples of services and support to help people living with dementia include: • specialist day centres; • respite care or short breaks; • assistive technology and community alarms; • home care; • meals at home; • community equipment; • extra care or sheltered housing; and • carers’ support groups.

Family support If you know someone who is worried about their memory, encourage them to visit their GP. The more support you can give someone, the better life with dementia can be, especially in the early years. Focus on what the person can do, not what they cannot do, help with little errands or with cooking, listen to the person with dementia, and find out more about the condition. When someone is living with dementia, they need: • support to live their life; • reassurance that they are still valued and that their feelings matter;

• freedom from as much external stress as possible; and • appropriate activities and stimulation to help them to remain alert and motivated for as long as possible.

Dementia Friends People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia – from helping someone find the right bus, to spreading the word about dementia. See www.dementiafriends.org.uk for further information.

Respite care Spouses, partners and relatives who care for a person with dementia may require a break from their caring responsibilities. This is known as ‘respite care’ and may be a regular break of a few hours a week or a period of a few weeks. It may be planned or be required in an emergency and can involve the person with dementia attending a day centre or a care worker visiting the person’s home to enable the carer to have a break. Contact the council to see if you are eligible for support with arranging these services, see page 16 for information on assessments.

Care at home It can often be best for a person with dementia to stay living in their own home for as long as possible. This may mean that they require some support services at home. The person living with dementia will respond best to the same care staff who know them well. Continuity of care can be provided by

either care agencies or care workers employed directly by the person or his or her family.

Specialist dementia day centres A good day care service will be able to offer a range of activities and support that will enable the person with dementia to retain skills and remain part of their local community. Specialist day centres for people with dementia should be organised and run with their needs in mind, aiming to build on their strengths and abilities. Activities may include outings, entertainment, personal care, meals, hairdressing and support for carers. Attendance at day centres can be offered from just a few hours a week to a number of days. Contact the council, or your local Alzheimer’s Society office for more details,

see page 116. Alzheimer’s Society This leading charity works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia. If you have concerns about any form of dementia, please contact your local office for information and support and access to local services. See page 116 for contact details. Alzheimer’s Society’s National Dementia Helpline is available on 0300 222 1122 and can provide information, support, guidance and signposting to other appropriate organisations. The helpline is open from 9.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday and 10.00am to 4.00pm, Saturday and Sunday. For more information on care homes for people with dementia, see page 51.

Paying for care in your home Councils provide upfront information on how much people can expect to pay for home care and how charges are worked out. This information must be made available when a needs assessment is carried out. Written confirmation of how the charge has been calculated must be provided after a financial assessment. The council calculates charges in accordance with national eligibility criteria set by the Government. This ensures people are only required to pay what they can afford, taking into account capital, savings, income and expenditure. Your financial assessment looks at your capital, savings and weekly income (including pensions and benefits). The council may also carry out a full benefit check and, if you want them to, assist you with claiming your full entitlement. See www.kent.gov.uk and search ‘paying for care’ for more information. Non-means tested care and support Care provided by the NHS is free; for example, services provided by a community or district nurse. Some people do not have to pay towards care services. For example, aftercare services provided under section 117 of the Mental Health Act are free of charge.

Other ways to fund your care and support It is important to seek independent financial advice if you are paying for your own care and support. There are independent financial advisers that focus specifically on care funding advice, often referred to as specialist care fees advisers. They are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and must stick to a code of conduct and ethics and take shared responsibility for the suitability of any product they recommend.

Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) Aims to assist consumers and their families in finding trusted, accredited financial advisers who understand financial needs in later life. Web: www.societyoflaterlifeadvisers. co.uk/find-an-adviser The Money Advice Service A free and impartial money advice service set up by the Government. Tel: 0800 138 7777 Web: www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk Further information on paying for care can be found beginning on page 54.

If you are in need of care or support you may be eligible to claim Attendance Allowance (AA), or Personal Independence Payments (PIP). AA and PIP are non-means tested benefits. Provided you are eligible, you can receive AA or PIP regardless of how much income or capital you have. AA is payable to people over the age of 65 and PIP to those aged 16 to 64. There are different rates that can be awarded, dependent on the level and type of help you need. These can be found at www.gov.uk

Housing with care Housing with care combines independent living in a home with security of tenure, along with care services arranged according to need. Schemes may be run by housing associations, the local authority, voluntary organisations or private companies. Properties may be available for rent, mixed tenure or to purchase.

Supported Living Supported Living is a term generally used to describe situations in which people (often adults with a learning disability or mental health condition) rent their home, and their personal care or support is arranged separately. This means they can change their support without having to move, or move and take the same support with them. People have greater security of tenure, and can claim a wider range of welfare benefits than in residential care. Supported Living can be delivered in a range of settings, including individual flats or houses, clusters of self-contained flats on the same site, shared accommodation, and extra care housing. The individual, a private landlord, a housing association, a local authority or a charity may own the property. Supported Living refers to the way in which accommodation and support are organised, rather than the amount of support. This will be tailored to individual need and can include access to support 24-hours a day if assessed as necessary, although many people do not require this – particularly with the use of assistive technology (discussed further on page 11).

For further information, visit www.kent.gov.uk/supportedhousing

42

Shared Lives Shared Lives is a care service for adults with learning or physical disabilities and for older people. It is family-based care provided by individuals and families. Shared Lives carers are local people recruited and trained to make sure they have the right qualities to provide care and support.

Sheltered housing Sheltered (or retirement) housing is provided by local authority housing departments and housing associations for people who would like to remain independent but prefer the added security and reassurance of a scheme manager and an alarm call service. A scheme manager is either based at the site or visits regularly. Many sheltered housing schemes also have communal lounges, laundry facilities, lifts, door entry systems and specially-adapted facilities. Contact the council for further advice.

Extra care housing Extra care housing is similar to sheltered schemes, with self-contained accommodation together with some communal facilities. In an extra care scheme, instead of low-level support traditionally provided by wardens in sheltered schemes, higher levels of care and support are provided on site by a designated team of care workers, who can be available 24-hours a day. Extra care allows you to retain your own tenancy and have care services delivered, ensuring that you can remain safely in your own self-contained accommodation. For information on extra care housing in your region, contact your local Adult Social Care department. Details are on page 114.

Specialist services Learning disability

Physical disability

The Government has indicated that services for people with disabilities should promote the following key principles:

If you have a physical disability or a long-term illness, organisations in the independent and not-for-profit sectors may be able to signpost you to, or provide you with, a range of services to help you live as independently as possible. There are also services available to support someone who may be your carer.

• 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; and • create opportunities for people to be included, rather than separated from society. If you are assessed as needing support, the local authority can help you find the right support to meet your needs. Services can include help in the home (explained on page 21), adaptations and equipment (see page 10) and holidays. For people looking to move out of their family home, there are a number of options that could be explored before considering residential care. You may want to have your own home with support arranged as necessary or you may want to look into a Supported Living scheme, explained on page 42. These options can give greater 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.

Mental health Your GP should be your first point of contact if you need help with a mental health condition or you are concerned about your mental health. They may refer you to your local Community Mental Health Team. These teams are made up of different professionals who will, with your permission, assess your mental health needs. They will then work with you to plan any support you may be assessed as needing.

Resource for those supporting children with additional needs My Family, Our Needs is an online resource providing impartial information for parents, carers and practitioners supporting children from birth to 25 years with additional needs. As well as guidance, policy and signposting, there is a lifestyle section for parents covering topics such as health and wellbeing, work, family and relationships. Visit www.myfamilyourneeds.co.uk

Advocacy Advocates can give advice, support and information to people of any age. They help you to voice your concerns and guide you through difficult or challenging times. You should consider using the services of an advocate if you feel unsure or concerned when you are faced with making an important decision about your care. Advocates are not there to tell you what to do or to make decisions for you, but to help you express your views and make your own decisions. Councils have a legal obligation to provide an advocate to you if you need one at any stage of your care and support planning with them.

For advocacy services in kent, see ‘Useful local contacts’ on page 116.

Planning for end of life Although the subject of dying is often painful to contemplate, planning for the end of life can be a good way to share your wishes and help your family to know what you would like. Good planning for all your needs should mean that you can convey your wishes, including where you would

like to die if you choose. You may wish to remain in your own home or care home in your last days and not be admitted to hospital. When choosing a service, you should consider its end of life care philosophy and policies. Enabling people to die in comfort and with dignity is a core part of providing care. The way care professionals approach the process will be incredibly important for you, your family and carers. The service should have an open approach to end of life care. It should initiate conversation with you and your family and work with your GP to ensure your needs and wishes are discussed and planned for. An end of life care plan should also be drawn up, as it is vital to establish your preferences and choices. You could use the Preferred Priorities for Care (PPC) document to help with outlining your wishes. The PPC document is designed to help you prepare for the future and gives you an opportunity to think about, talk about and write down your preferences and priorities for care at the end of life. It is also important to know that all health and social care staff must be trained in communication regarding end of life care and will be trained in assessing the needs of individuals and carers. It is worth asking care providers whether they are working towards The Gold Standards Framework. This can be used in various settings, for example hospitals, primary care and care homes, to improve the co-ordination and communication between different organisations involved in providing care for someone near the end of their life.

Care homes All care providers in the country must be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). All services are inspected by the CQC, which reports on its findings and rates each home. These inspection reports and ratings are available at the home or from the CQC (www.cqc.org.uk). Before you decide whether to move into a residential home, you may want to contact the council for a needs assessment (see page 16).

Types of care home Care homes (personal care only) If you need someone to look after you 24hours a day, but don’t need nursing care, a care home offering only personal care may be the best option. Personal care includes bathing, feeding, dressing and help with moving but you may need to pay for it, depending on your needs and finances. See page 54 for more information on paying for your care or visit www.kent.gov.uk and search ‘paying for residential care’. Care homes with nursing A care home with nursing provides the same support as a care home, but with 24-hour nursing staff on hand. If you think you may need nursing care in a home, you will need to be visited by a social worker or a care manager to work out what care you will need. This visit might be in your own home, or in hospital if you’ve been ill, or in a care home. You will be fully involved in planning for your care needs. If, after a needs assessment, a care home providing nursing care is the best solution for you, a social worker will give you information to help you find a home which meets your care requirements. The cost of the nursing care part of your fees is paid by the NHS to the home directly. Check with Adult Social Care for current rates.

Activities in care homes The word ‘activity’ can imply many different things but, in the context of a care home, it should mean everything a resident does from when they open their eyes in the morning until they go to sleep at night. Activities should stimulate residents emotionally, physically and mentally and, in a good care home, should encompass all aspects of daily life. They can range from choosing what to wear, to helping with tasks around the home or garden, to listening to the radio or joining in with an art or exercise class. Above all, activities provide a point of interest, fun and challenge to each day. They should enable people to participate in daily life, be engaged and maintain hobbies or activities they have enjoyed throughout their life, as well as offering the opportunity to try something new, if they wish.

Lots of care homes now employ a dedicated activity co-ordinator. What they do and how they do it varies from one home to another. Increasingly, they are fully integrated into the staff team, play a key part in developing care plans and ensure that all staff appreciate the part they play in delivering high-quality activity provision. Ensure you speak to any potential providers about the activities they provide in their care home.

Dementia in care homes A good care home will follow the concept of a person-centred approach to care for people with dementia. This means that the unique qualities and interests of each individual will be identified, understood and accounted for in any care planning. The person with dementia will have an assessment and an ongoing personalised care plan, agreed across health and social care. This should identify a named care co-ordinator and addresses their individual needs. They must also have the opportunity to discuss and make decisions, together with their carers, about the use of advance statements, advance decisions to refuse treatment, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Preferred Priorities for Care. For more information on these, see pages 45 and 56. It is important that care and support options are tailored to the needs of the individual. Make sure staff know the person you care for by providing life story books, telling staff about their likes and dislikes and providing belongings that bring comfort and have meaning for them. Within the home, much is down to the attitude and skills of the manager and the staff. Do they provide an environment that enables a person with dementia to exercise choice and personal preferences even in the later stages of the condition? Who is the person in charge of championing dementia

care best practice in the home? Further questions to consider are included in the residential dementia care checklist on page 52.

Design and technology The design of a care home specialising in dementia needs to be based on small group living, preferably with accommodation on one level and with opportunities to go in and out of the building within a safe environment. Plenty of natural light and an easy way of finding one’s way around the building and grounds are essential for minimising disorientation.

Staff training Dementia-specific training is essential to ensure that care home staff understand how best to support and care for people with dementia. Ask to speak with the Dementia Champion and question the placement if the home does not have a specific Dementia Lead.

for you, they will have to pay the difference between the local authority rate and the amount the home charges. This additional payment is often referred to as a ‘top-up’ or ‘third party contribution’. The law says that you are not allowed to make this additional payment yourself, except in limited circumstances. Therefore, in the main, the additional payment has to be made by someone else, for example, a family member or charity.

Third party payments If you are eligible for local authority support and the home you choose costs more than the rate the local authority usually pays for someone with your needs, you will have the choice to ask someone else to make an additional payment.

How solicitors can help A solicitor can give you impartial advice about wills, 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 (LPAs) allow you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions

56

about your personal welfare, including healthcare and consent to medical treatment, and/or your property and financial affairs. A LPA is only valid once registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. It allows 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 and 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.

For assistance with finding care and support, call Care Choices on 0800 389 2077


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 timescales 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 Citizens Advice Bureau offers an advice service and will be able to recommend solicitors in your area.

Comments, compliments and complaints You should feel able to complain about any aspect of your support which affects your happiness or comfort. This might be anything from the way you are treated by staff to the quality of the food you are served. You should also feel free to make comments and suggestions about possible improvements to your surroundings and the services provided.

more information about the CQC). If your local authority has arranged and funded a place for you in a care home or has contributed to a home care service, another option is to complain to your social worker/ care manager or the department’s designated complaints manager. If you have been unable to resolve your complaint, you can contact the Local Government Ombudsman on 0300 061 0614 and ask them to assist you. The Local Government Ombudsman looks at complaints about councils and some other authorities and organisations, including adult social care providers (such as care homes and home care providers). It is a free service. Its job is to investigate complaints in a fair and independent way.

Making a complaint should not be made difficult for you and should not affect the standard of care that you receive. Care services are required under national essential standards of quality and safety to have a simple and easy to use complaints procedure. If you are concerned about the care that you, a friend or a relative are receiving, it makes sense to speak to the manager of the service about your concerns 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 your complaint is about a breach of regulations, contact your local office of the Care Quality Commission (see page 58 for

Inspecting and regulating care services All care providers must be registered under a system which brings adult social care, independent healthcare and the NHS under a single set of essential standards of quality and safety. 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.

The Care Quality Commission, Citygate, Gallowgate, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4PA

Out-of-county care You can choose a care home outside your home county. You may want to be closer to friends or family members or you may want to relocate to another part of the country.

Inspectors carry out a mixture of announced and unannounced inspections looking at the quality and safety of the care provided. They look at whether the service is: Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive to people’s needs, and Well-led.

If your care home place is state-funded, speak to the local authority about who is responsible for your care fees, especially if you choose a care home in another region. Any home you choose must be suitable for your assessed needs and comply with the paying authority’s terms and conditions. You should seek further advice before making your decision.

Inspection teams are led by an experienced CQC manager and often include experts in their field. The team may also include professional or clinical staff; Experts by Experience; people who use services; and carers.

For information on care provision in Kent and other regions, contact this Directory’s phone service on 0800 389 2077 with details of your requirements.

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. The CQC has also started rating services as: Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement and Inadequate. When considering a care service, it’s always a good idea to check its inspection report and rating on the CQC’s comprehensive website www.cqc.org.uk or ask the care provider you are considering for a copy of their latest inspection report.

For any enquiries or to register a concern or a complaint, phone the CQC on 03000 616161 or email enquiries@cqc.org.uk

Protecting vulnerable adults Vulnerable adults may experience abuse, neglect and worse. A vulnerable adult is a person aged 18 years or over who may be unable to take care of themselves or protect themselves from harm or from being exploited. What is adult abuse? Abuse is mistreatment that violates a person’s human and civil rights. The abuse can vary from treating someone with disrespect in a way which significantly affects the person’s quality of life, to causing actual physical suffering.

For assistance with finding care and support, call Care Choices on 0800 389 2077


It can happen anywhere – at home, in a care home or a care home with nursing, a hospital, in the workplace, at a day centre or educational establishment, in supported housing or in the street. Forms of abuse could be physical, sexual, psychological, emotional or financial. It could also cover the issues of modern slavery, selfneglect and institutional abuse – where the abuse affects more than one person within an organisation and is not addressed by the service’s management. Who might be causing the abuse? The person who is responsible for the abuse may be known to the person abused and could be: • a paid carer or volunteer; • a health worker, social care or other worker; • a relative, friend or neighbour; • another resident or service user; • an occasional visitor or someone who is providing a service; or • someone who deliberately exploits vulnerable people. What should you do? If you think someone is being abused, call Adult Social Care. Your concerns will be taken seriously and will receive prompt attention, advice and support. If the abuse is also a crime such as assault, racial harassment, rape or theft you should involve the police to prevent someone else from being abused. If the police are involved Adult Social Care will work with them and with you to support you. If you are worried about contacting the police you can contact Adult Social Care to

talk things over first. If immediate action is needed dial 999. You can also: • contact the Care Quality Commission (CQC) on 03000 616161 if the vulnerable adult is living in a registered care home, care home with nursing or receiving home care services; or • let a public service professional, such as a social worker, community nurse, GP, probation officer or district nurse know your concerns. They have responsibilities under the county’s adult protection procedure and can advise you about what to do next.

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) There is a barring system for all those intending to work, or working with children and vulnerable adults. This service combines the criminal records checking and barring functions. For disclosure information and services, visit www.gov.uk/dbs Care home owners, home care agencies and employment agencies that supply care workers are required to request checks as part of a range of pre-employment checks, including disclosures from the DBS. Care providers and suppliers of care workers are also required to refer workers to the DBS where, in their view, the individual has been guilty of misconduct that harmed or placed at risk of harm, a vulnerable adult. People who know they are confirmed on the list but seek employment in care positions will face criminal charges including possible imprisonment. It is also an offence for an employer or voluntary organisation to knowingly employ a barred person in a regulated activity role.

Our Philosophy of Care

‘Care’ is arguably a word that can be open to interpretation, so we aim to leave you in no doubt about what we mean by ‘care’, our commitment to its delivery and our determination that it should always be the life-blood that runs through Iden Manor, every day, in everything we do.

We look forward to welcoming you…….

A home from home, as individual as you are, offering general nursing, dementia care, respite and day care.

• Registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) • General Nursing Care available 24 hour • Specialist Dementia service • Respite and Day Care available • Nursing specialties include MS, Parkinson’s Disease, non- age related PVS and palliative care

Imagine the quintessential Victorian mansion with its magnificent turrets, gables, doorways, and vast windows looking out onto beautiful grounds that provide a haven for wildlife. Imagine well-tended gardens, quiet seclusion, places to walk, places to sit, views that sustain and space to breathe. Imagine magnificent and spacious reception rooms – one with wood panelled walls, an open fire in winter and comfy chairs whatever the time of year. Or another with floor-to-ceiling bay windows looking out onto the grounds where birds, squirrels, rabbits, foxes and badgers create a marvellous spectacle throughout the day. Iden Manor is that place: an impressively spacious, light and airy Victorian mansion set in 15 acres of landscaped grounds and approached by a long leafy drive. And yet despite the grandeur of the building, it offers a warm and familiar welcome and has a comfortable, lived-in-and-loved feel to it…

Belmont Sandbanks Care Group consists of Madeira Lodge, Sandbanks and Edendale, which offer specialist residential care for those with dementia and related diagnosis. In addition Madeira Day Services and Belmont Home Care Services offer diversity and complimentary services for families across the spectrum of care. Within these settings, specialist elderly care is provided for people with mental health needs, predominantly dementia. Care is also offered to those with an early onset diagnosis of dementia, this may be in form of our Day Care Services, Respite Services, Home Care Services or short term emergency care. There is a registered mental nurse and dementia clinic available through our Day Services to offer clinical support and supervision for staff, service users and families across all of our sites.

We believe that each individual is a unique social being who has dignity and worth, although requiring acts of assistance due to their frailty, or ill health, this should only be done in a climate which enables them to retain their self-respect and independence. Carers will provide holistic caring relationships, which will assist residents to maintain optimum mental, physical, social and spiritual well being. With over 20 years experience, Belmont Sandbanks has a history of delivering on their vision of care: your loved ones are in safe hands.

Bethany Lodge & Bethany House are specialist homes for young adults who have a physical disability. Each home is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide Nursing & Residential Care. Bethany Lodge is a purpose built unit. It was opened in 1992 and had 24 single rooms all of which are on the ground floor. Bethany House was opened in 1997 having been purpose designed and built for clients with disabilities. There are 15 single rooms all of which are en-suite with their own toilet, washbasin and shower. Bethany Lodge & Bethany House are located on the southern coast of Kent at Dymchurch.

Allendale Care is a small bespoke Care company that tailors the care around your needs

Live-in Home Care provides you with an alternative to a residential or nursing home. Your carer lives with you, in your home, providing round the clock care. Live-in Care provides your loved one with a companion who assists with personal care, meal preparation, mobility, social engagements, medical appointments and housekeeping. A carer provides emotional and mental support especially to those suffering from dementia and keeps them safe in their own home. They provide comfort at night when your loved ones are often lonely and frightened. By lending a hand carers reduce the risk of falls and engender confidence. We offer a few days respite care to long term indefinite care. We are registered with CQC and follow their strict guidelines on carer selection. We monitor the well being of both the client and the carer 24/7. We assist and manage changes required to improve the clients quality of life.

• One-to-one care & support • Cost effective • Stay in your own home • Privacy & Independence • Live with spouse • Freedom to make choices • Surrounded by family and friends • Maintain lifestyle & routine • Keep pets & garden • Personal care • Supervision of medication • Shopping • Medical appointments • Social activities, hobbies and interests • Mobility • Peace of mind
