The aim of this Directory is to support the implementation of the Care Act by providing Cheshire West and Chester residents with details of activities and services which are locally available to meet their social care needs. These might include extra care housing and domiciliary care as well as services for people who need more intensive 24-hour care in a residential care or nursing home environment. We want to make sure that the process of accessing care services is as straightforward as possible and is easily understood.
The Care Act 2014 is a new piece of law which came into place in April 2015 and makes positive changes to the way care and support is provided for adults and Carers. The Act is designed to ensure that people receive services that prevent their care needs from becoming more serious, or delay the impact of their needs; can get the information and advice they need to make good decisions about care and support; and have a range of high-quality care providers to choose from.
