Help with finding care and support for a loved one


Have you noticed that a family member, or someone you care for is starting to struggle with day to day life?  Perhaps they are becoming more forgetful and you are concerned for their wellbeing, or maybe they are finding it harder to move around or cope at home?


Naturally this can be a very worrying time, so understanding the best way to support or find care to help them is important – but it’s not always easy to know where to start.


Here in Surrey there’s lots of care and support available, from people who can provide walking aids and install grip rails, through to help with personal care and jobs around the home like cleaning or gardening. There are also organisations that can help people who are starting to have problems with their memory. All of these services can make a really big difference and allow people to continue to living well and independently in their own homes for longer.


If you’d like to find out how some of these groups or services might be able to help you or a loved one, the Surrey Information Point website is a great place to start. Packed full of useful local links, contact details and advice, it’s also a hub for information on local clubs where people can find a way of keeping or getting more active and meeting new friends.


So, if you know someone who needs a little extra help, remember that there’s care and support available to them. To find out more, head to surreyinformationpoint.org.uk or call the Adult Social Care Helpline on
