Our Care Finder Service

The UK Care Guide’s care finder service is designed to take the stress out of finding a care provider.  We can help you with:

– Finding a Home Care provider

– Finding a Live in Care provider

– Finding a Care Home

The best thing about it is that it is FREE!

What is the Care Finder Service?

For many people, looking for care for themselves or a loved one can be a stressful experience. Many people coming to our site are looking for help and information, as seeking care is not something they have to do previously. However, based on the questions we get asked, its clear to us that people need real support in helping them decide between different care providers.

How do I use the free service?

You can have a ‘chat’ with Rory the Robot and he will ask you some simple questions about your care needs.

Once you have left us your contact details, we will work with Care Sourcer, to find you some suitable options.  They will  come back to you with some suitable options, once they have checked who has availability and whether they can work within your budget.  All this is done confidentially and none of your personal details are disclosed to any provider.

We’ve created Rory the Robot to help you quickly find the right type of care.  You can tell Rory what help you need and we will then go and find it for you!  Just click “Help me find care” below.

Why we created the care finder service

We have tried to provide people with as much written information as we can.

For example we produced guides including:

5 steps to find a care home; and

– Tips on choosing a home care agency.

However, we are still finding that people need more help and information.

What people really seem to want is someone to find a provider that is right for them, and that is hard to do by looking at words on a screen.

What does the care finder service do?

It’s really simple.  You tell us what type of care you are looking for and who it is for.

Care Sourcer will then give you a call to discuss your care requirements.  Based on what you say, they will anonymously approach some suitable care providers.  The providers that are sourced will meet your requirements, have availability and within your budget.  You can then choose whether you speak to those providers or continue on with your own search.

We have a straightforward 3 step process:

Step 1 – You have a chat with Rory the Robot (see above and below) and he will ask you about your needs.  Or you can just leave your contact details on this page.  Someone from Care Sourcer will then give you a call to double-check your requirements.

Step 2 – Based on what you say, someone will go and confidentially speak to a number of care providers that we think meet your needs.  We will also check that they have availability to provide the care.

Step 3 – A range of suitable of care providers will then be presented to you alongside some information about them.   You will then be free to contact them or we can arrange for them to contact you directly.  But at least you will have the confidence that you have had us supporting you every step of the way.

Why you would benefit from the service?

For many people, looking for care is not something they have much experience in.  However, they are keen to get it right as they are looking for care for either themselves or a loved one.  But they do not have the time to go from care provider to care provider trying to establish what the right options is for them.

On average, this service will save you about 30 hours of your time. In our experience, this is split:

15 HOURS – reading about the types of care, what it is, how its funded and trying to establish what would be best

10 HOURS – researching care providers online to identify a short-list

5 HOURS – speaking to short-listed providers to discuss costs, care availability and importantly your specific requirements

Our service will save you this 30 hours of time!

What does the service cost?

Another simple answer.  The service is FREE!

We don’t charge you anything to find a care provider suited to your needs. Our mission is to help people and this is one way that we felt people would really benefit.

What do you need to do next?

If you would like our help then please have a chat with Rory the robot and he will ask you what we need to know about the person looking for care.  Based on what you tell him, we will find you a care provider.
