Care providers get their own directory
2:38pm Wednesday 19th September 2012 in News
PEOPLE seeking information about care service providers in North Yorkshire will have their task made easier from this month, when free copies of the first North Yorkshire Care Services Directory will be available in local libraries.
The directory has been produced by Care Choices Ltd, in association with North Yorkshire County Council and the Independent Care Group.
It contains comprehensive listings of organisations providing residential care, and care in the home. There is also guidance on paying for services and what financial assistance is available from the State.
“Making decisions about social care can be daunting, particularly for people who have had no involvement with it before,” said County Coun Clare Wood, executive member for adult social care.
“This directory provides clear, easy to understand guidance, and what’s more, it is being offered free in libraries across North Yorkshire for a limited period beginning this week.”
The directory is also available at northyorks.gov.uk
