Need adult care and support? Care Choices can help you.
The council has produced an Adult Care and Support Services Directory and guide to give you information about all the forms of care and support available in Leicester City, Rutland and Leicestershire. It goes from information about local voluntary and community groups for people who just need a bit of support to stay independent all the way through to residential care homes for those who need full time care. It explains how to get an assessment from social services, how the funding works and has comprehensive lists of the providers in each area.
For a free copy of this directory please see the website
