Care Concierge

What is Care Concierge?

What is Care Concierge?

Later life care is generally something that people never plan for; it hits families at the time of crisis. It’s only when eldercare for a loved one needs to be considered that the realisation sets in, that this is a very confusing and complex system.

Through your employer having a group protection policy with us, you have access to our Care Concierge Guidance package for free.

Care Concierge is a telephone service, which allows you to speak directly to a care expert about your loved-one’s later life care needs.

Our guidance package enables you to access to the following benefits immediately;

  • A 30-minute telephone consultation with a care expert
  • Support with understanding what kind of care is needed and how to arrange it
  • Guidance on typical care costs and the available options towards paying for care
  • E-mail summarising everything discussed, care guides tailored to your situation, and a list of relevant service.

A free online care service platform is also available, providing you with the opportunity to self-serve information around a number of key issues, including housing, means testing, care provision and funding.

The Care Concierge service is flexible and can give as much or as little support as needed.

If you feel that you require additional support for more complex needs outside of the Guidance level, you can upgrade to Research (£240) or Liaison (£480) packages at any point. The charges are a one-off cost for the entirety of your care journey, for which full terms will be provided.
