What is the right care package for Granny?

When you reach that stage in your life, or the life of a loved one, when you realise that you need help, there is a bewildering array of options available to you. Which one do you choose? I am delighted to be able to say that there is highly skilled and professional help available, which I am glad to be able to introduce to you – MySupportBroker. In the following few paragraphs, I’ll help you to understand:

  • What a Support Broker does
  • What the potential benefits are
  • How to contact MySupportBroker.

What is a support broker and what do they do?

A support broker is trained, qualified and accredited to work with you, your family, carers, friends and loved ones to source, negotiate, plan and manage your care and support.

Support brokers know that arranging quality and value for money care and support is critical. At the same time, they understand that it’s not the only thing important to you in your life – so that’s just their starting point. From there they do much more, by helping you plan your best day, tailor support and services to live your life as independently as possible and get the people who matter involved.

MySupportBroker CIC is a registered social enterprise, working nationally and bringing together people locally who have expertise, insight and knowledge of care and support – serving those with physical and mental health conditions who need care and support – at any stage and at any age in their lives.

How could you benefit?

Support brokers work to your budget, however you fund your care (self-funding, council-funded or in combination), researching, negotiating and helping you put in place services which deliver wellbeing for you. By wellbeing we mean things like being socially connected, doing the things you want to do, living where you want to be, directing your life as much as you wish and helping you to live a life not dictated by your condition.

Planning in this way enables their customers to reduce the costs of care by an average of 20%, resulting from the more creative types of care and support our brokers help put in place having understood their well-being needs. As caring people, we all want to make sure loved ones are well looked after – but more than anything we want them to be as happy as they can be – and that means much more than just organising good care.
