In 2012 Prestige Nursing + Care will be working to help raise funds for one of the UK's leading charities giving advice and information to older people. At a time when there is so much change within the care industry we feel it is critically important to help support charities that provide such support for older people on a range of important issues.
Independent Age, which recently merged with two other older people's charities, Counsel and Care and Universal Beneficent Society, provides a broader range of services than any of the charities could provide separately. Independent Age provides a national information and advice service for older people, their families and carers, focusing on three vital areas: social care, including care at home, in hospital and residential care; welfare benefits; befriending services and other social support. This is integrated with local support, including: practical help with forms, assessments and one-to-one and group befriending schemes. Independent Age uses the knowledge it gains from providing its services to help influence policy and practice.
