Later life care is generally something that people never plan for; and can hit 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 can be a very confusing and complex system.
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.
The care service enables you access to the following benefits:
- 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.
- This helpful service is available to you as your employer has a group protection policy with us.
- Provides access to an online care service platform where there is a wealth of information around key issues.
- Guidance from professionals who know the care system, meaning that the right options are found more easily.
- Helps to reduce the emotional burden on you and your immediate family.
- Helps to reduce the time span between needing care and accessing care.
- Information and guidance on how to find the best care for you or a loved one.
- Understand the funding option that may be available to help cover the cost of care.
Providing reassurance and practical advice
Legal & General’s Care Concierge service was ‘an absolute lifesaver’ when Susannah needed help for a family member. Her Uncle, in his 70s, struggled after losing his wife and was admitted to hospital twice with various health issues.
Susannah felt helpless: “Someone suggested I call Legal & General’s Care Concierge service and I spoke to the most amazing woman. She was an absolute lifesaver. She gave me some options to think about, including other people I could talk to and where we could access emergency funding. I can’t speak highly enough of the Care Concierge service - I don’t know what we would have done without them.”
