Care and Winter Warmth Advice with Independent Age

Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham, is raising awareness of Independent Age and the good work they do for older people and their families.

Independent Age offers free and impartial advice to older people, and have recently released their latest reports – Paying for Your Care and Winter Wise.

Paying for Your Care highlights the different ways people can fund their care, and help distinguish between the various care options. It is also a useful guide to help older people plan the care that would best suit their individual needs. Winter Wise has been created to help older people stay as healthy and safe as possible during the winter months, and provides information on wellbeing, financial support and home adjustments.

Alex said:

The guides produced by Independent Age offer useful tips for older people in Stockton North – whether it be about their future care package, or how to stay safe and warm this winter. I’d encourage people to have a look at the guides and see what they have to offer.
