A new directory has just been published for older people or people with disabilities who need social care support in Nottinghamshire.

The County Council’s 2014/15 Care and Support Service Directory provides information about a range of services to help people live independently at home.

It also lists local home care providers and residential and nursing care homes for those who need a higher level of support.

There is also advice on paying for care, financial assistance available and who is eligible for support.

Coun Muriel Weisz, Chair of Adult Social Care and Health Committee, said: “People tell us they want to stay living independently in their own homes for as long as possible. This directory gives information about services such as respite care, equipment and technology to keep people safe at home and our meals at home service.

“We’ve included information about extra care services, which is similar to sheltered housing but with a care team on site for 24 hours a day. There are also details about local residential and nursing care homes, including the quality mark the Council has awarded each home.”

The Care Directory is published by Care Choices Ltd. Robert Chamberlain, Publisher of Care Choices Directories, said: “When choosing care you should be armed with the most up-to-date information to help you decide which kind of care is most suitable, who will provide it and how it is to be funded.”

The Care and Support Directory is available in e-book format with a spoken word option via or you can receive a free copy by phoning the County Council on 0300 500 80 80.
