On-line Care Campaign

04.09.12 PHOTO IN OFFICE 2More than 80 per cent of people who attended a free advice care clinic in Shropshire were looking for help to remain independent, a county care service has revealed.


Charlotte Quinton and Andrea Jones, of Independent Care Solutions (ICS), based in Shrewsbury, have launched a free care clinic at their offices in the Rural Enterprise Centre in Shrewsbury.

Andrea said the August clinic at their offices was so well received they had to go into a second day due to demand and have now set September 27 as their next date.

She said: “Already we have spoken to dozens of people in person at the clinics and online during the advice session who are unsure of what their next move should be with regards to care or just do not know where to start.

“At our August clinic here at the office 83 per cent of those who attended were family carers and 70 per cent were looking for advice about dementia care. Of the people we spoke to 85 per cent were concerned about themselves or a family member remaining independent and in their own homes.”

To book on to attend the next free advice clinic contact ICS on (01743) 724990.


The company has also launched an online advice session and gives advice once a week via Twitter using the hashtag #carehour.

 

The Twitter campaign #carehour is held on Thursdays from 2.30pm to 3.30pm and people across the country can ask for advice or find out more about what is available by contacting @UKCareAdvice and using the hashtag.

ICS is the first registered and independent care advisory and support brokerage service in Shropshire. For more information about the services they offer visit www.uk-ics.com
