Social care

January 15, 2023

What is the definition of social care?

Social care services provide support to people with disabilities, physical disabilities/ilnesses and mental illnesses. This support can cover practical activities, personal care and social work, intended to help the people receiving social care to live comfortably.

How does social care work?

Social care is provided in many different forms, ranging from some extra help around the house and assistance with washing and dressing, through to help with building positive relationships, access to specialist equipment, or full-time residential care. The care a person receives is dependent on their specific needs.

Care services are either funded and provided formally – through the local council or private funds, or provided by family members, friends or neighbours.

If you or your family are faced with the prospect of self funding please contact Matrix Estate Planning to discuss your options.
