It also offers details of services including domiciliary care, day services, extra care housing and residential care for when people need more help, as well as a comprehensive list of providers.
Benefits of the care guide to people in West Sussex
Councillor Amanda Jupp, Cabinet Member for Adults’ Services, said: “There are a considerable number of care options available to suit a wide variety of needs. Our care guide explains the different types on offer and is full of useful information about the many service providers in West Sussex.
“It is an excellent starting point for those who are thinking about care for the first time, either for themselves or a loved one, or if they are already accessing support but want to know what other options are available to meet their changing needs.
“The care guide reflects the feedback we have received from people, what they have told us is important to them and that most of them would like to continue to live in their own homes for as long as possible.
“That is why one of the key priorities of our adult social care strategy is to give residents the information they need to make decisions that can support their wish to stay independent, living the life they want to lead.”
