Finding the right care home for you

We appreciate that choosing the right home can be difficult. Having worked with many families over the years, we know how upsetting and frightening moving into a new home can be, especially for those that are unwell and would rather stay at home, which is why we are here to help from the very beginning.

 

Getting advice on what options there are is the first big step

Our care home managers meet people who are in need of care or respite every day. We understand what a difficult time it can be and we are always happy to talk to anyone considering different care options and answer any questions you may have.

 

Pensions - Automatic Enrolment for Employers

The law on workplace pensions has changed. Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called 'automatic enrolment'.

Whether you're a hairdresser, an architect or employ a personal care assistant, if you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties.
