Clarity Care Consulting

A Day in The Life of an Independent Care Advisor

Where do I start looking for care? “I don’t know where to start” is something we hear almost daily. Moving on from that, people then ask how we go about finding care services, so I thought I’d share a fairly typical day for the Clarity team. We were recently contacted by a gentleman whose mother-in-law […]

Why is the level of customer care so poor for people looking for care services?

I’ve been working in the care sector for more years than I care to admit, and Clarity Care Consulting is in its 9th year of finding care services for our customers. One of the things that still frustrates me the most is the poor level of customer care provided to people looking for care services […]

Amazing new residential care homes and nursing homes

At times it can be easy to lose sight of some of the progress being made with the delivery of care and the provision of services in care homes, especially with the news tending to focus on everything bad, rather than what is good. However, there are some great new care homes being built in […]

Help to the end – how we helped a client with changing care needs

Three years ago, we were contacted by a firm of solicitors who asked us for help with an elderly client of theirs. The gentleman was struggling at home and required home care to enable him to keep his independence and remain living at his home.  He didn’t have any surviving family who could help him […]

Hospital discharges – managing the pressure to find care

Pressures on NHS hospital services The NHS has been under tremendous pressure with the delivery of services throughout 2016 and this is most visible within our major hospitals.

So many types of care, what do they all mean?

Each industry and service has its own phrases and terms, and it’s amazing how easy it is when you work within an industry to assume that everybody knows what you mean when you say something. The care industry is no different and this was highlighted to me recently through some work I have been doing with one […]

Care at Christmas and New Year

We were so busy in the run up to Christmas that we didn’t get the chance to publish our December newsletter wishing everybody a Merry Christmas, so we’re writing a slightly early Happy New Year one instead. December is always a busy time in the care industry, with hospitals trying very hard to get people […]

Care homes aren’t the only option for hospital discharges.

Care homes aren’t the only option for hospital discharges. Most people believe that once an elderly person is taken into hospital it is the start of a one way journey to a care home or nursing home and once there, they are never coming home again, but I want to dispel this myth, as it […]

Going the extra mile to find a care home

Categories :Care Home Search

Our recent case requiring our personalised Care Home search service left us asking the question is there a shortage of expertise to support people living with Dementia who have higher needs?  Being told there is a shortage of beds is bad enough and something we are fully aware of but when we were told our […]
