Confidential Care Enquiry

Confidential Care Enquiry

If you require care for yourself or a relative send an email to liz@ihcp.co.uk providing in a short paragraph some details of the person who requires care, their specific care needs, and the location for the service. We will circulate this to members on a confidential basis and forward to you the expressions of interest received from members for you to assess.

If you require a care home or a few hours of care in a person’s home it’s good to have all the information you need. This service is free and completely confidential.
