Where 4 Care Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why Where 4 Care, why don’t I just contact a provider directly?

    Searching for care can be a very daunting task. Some people are lucky enough to have been allocated outside support, such as a social worker or a hospital discharge liaison team, but with government backed resources stretched we are seeing many people who feel isolated and have no support, when support is needed. Here at W4C we are committed to assisting all callers with finding a forward facing journey, and to take away some of the stress and uncertainty that can be felt when searching for care. We are aware some are confident and happily search for their own providers and may not need the support on offer and that’s great too. It’s whatever suits you. The Where 4 Care team are here waiting in the wings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to chat with our lovely callers.

    In short, no.  Everyone has the choice to choose the care provider they wish to provide care, whether they are on the council framework or not.  This is the person centred approach, adopted by councils. You simply need to ask for a direct payment or a managed Individual Service Fund, whereby funds are provided for your chosen care provider. Contact us on 03300 437 015 if you require support.
