They can help you with a wide range of issues, including benefit or pension queries, housing or residential care placements, legal issues such as power of attorney and making a will, accessing equipment, practical support and funeral planning.

It was such a help speaking to a social worker. She told me who to talk to and what Mum would need to aid her and us to keep her at home. I felt empowered and able to advocate for Mum.
