According to figures published last year by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), choosing adult social care in England is one of the biggest sources of stress today. The survey findings reveal that 70% of adults who were responsible for choosing care in a care home or a home – either for themselves or a loved one – over the last three years have found it more stressful than choosing their child’s nursery school or a venue for their wedding, whether that be an Abbie [McManus] or a [Alex] Greenwood. 

It’s almost like you need the financial knowledge of Mark [Karen] Carney – Governor of the Bank of England – to understand the complexities of care fees funding! 

Before the stress makes you turn to a glass of [Beth] Mead or a Demi-john [Stokes] of beer or you simply escape to [Nikita] Parris, Fran-ce [Kirby] on a Leah [Williamson] jet or even over the [Lucy Stani]Forth Road Bridge to [Jill] Scott[land], why not give us a call at The Goodman Partnership? 

A lot of people call us at the moment of crisis but why not plan ahead a little, before you’ve [Toni] Dugg[an] yourself into a hole? Perhaps you or your loved one is having to receive [Rachel] Daly help at home and you’re looking at the same four [Keira] Wals[h] or are thinking about buying a [Georgia] Stan[way]nah stairlift to get [Mary] Earps the stairs? Maybe now is the time to [Carly] Tel[ford] us, rather than wait until you can’t Karen [Bardsley] on any [Jade] Moore? 

Many of our clients tell us that calling us was a [Millie] Bright idea, as we are able to [Jodie] Taylor our advice to match their particular circumstances. If our clients were giving out medals, they often say they’d give us a gold one – rather than a silver or [Lucy] Bronze!

Two of our team – Neil Whitaker and Andy Kirk – are full members of SOLLA (the Society of Later Life Advisers). This means that they follow a strict code of practice and are whiter than [Ellen] White. 

Take a Step[h Houghton] in our direction today and call us on tel: 01892 500600.
