Need to access the social care system quickly?
Secure the support needed in a crisis
Nobody can predict an accident or incident that will leave someone you love needing daily support to carry on with their life. And no one can predict the onset of dementia or disability.
Independent social work advice
It’s a hugely emotional time after a bereavement or being diagnosed with a debilitating physical or mental illness and people often struggle to determine the support needed or to access it in sufficient time.
I’m Worried About Mum offers impartial advice to families that is quick and easily accessible in the case of an emergency. With over 20 years’ experience as a social worker and as a Dementia Friend Champion, I can find the right level of help when it’s needed the most so that no one has to cope alone.
Support in a crisis from a distance
People often worry about their family living so far away, their finances, feeling socially isolated and having to copy with being alone and in control of their life.
Independent social work support will provide all the necessary advice and help to create a plan for the future that creates peace of mind for families who live apart and a way to access support in a crisis.
- Signposting financial support
- Help to liaise with your GP and organise medication or medical appointments
- Personal support in the home or organising external agency care
- Management of care provision and daily social and practical needs
Trust in professional advice, ease the emotional burden of making tough decisions for loved ones and implement the gold standard of care for your loved one quickly to help them remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
“Just recently my mum was admitted as an emergency patient to hospital … I don’t live in the same county as my mum and found myself away from my own family trying to sort out support, care and rehabilitation for Mum.
This is where Sally came in … she kindly spent some time on the phone asking questions, listening and offering possible routes of action.
She was calm, respectful, knowledgeable … [and] has a wonderful way of getting to the heart of the matter. She is direct whilst being supportive. And she is clearly an incredibly knowledgeable expert in her field. I’d highly recommend and I will be forever grateful for her help at a time of need. Thank you Sally”
