Frequently Asked Questions about Wealden Community Care

Q. If I ask you for help, does that mean I'll be losing all my independence?

A. No, we only get involved as much as you want or allow. We'll meet with you at the outset to discuss your requirements and then tailor our service to your needs.

Q. I'm having a stay in hospital, can you help me when I come out?

A. Yes, of course we can. However you need us to help we're there. You control the extent to which we're involved and we're used to helping out for short periods of convalescence. If you need us long-term that's possible too but it is up to you.

Q. I'm not particularly wealthy - is it really possible to have home care and afford to stay in my own home?

A. There are a number of financing options available that don't involve you having to sell your home. That's the whole point of Wealden Community Care - enabling you to stay in your familiar surroundings rather than a formal care environment. You can start by meeting the costs out of normal income, pensions and allowances (depending on the level of help required).

Q. Is there any government funding I can investigate?

A. The Government and local authorities provide means tested financial assistance, advice and other forms of support to elderly, sick and disabled people who need help with their personal care or nursing. Assistance may vary between different areas of the UK.

Q. Will I have the same carer?

A. There is generally a team of carers working within each area, and you may have one or more carers visiting you from within this team. If more than one carer visits you, it does tend to work better as there will be less disruption to your service when one is away on scheduled or emergency leave.
