Some circumstances make it difficult to live completely independently such as age, illness or a disability, however remaining independent is important.
Community care is the provision of vital services and funding to help vulnerable individuals to stay living at home, providing services such as domiciliary care or adaptations to your home such as a stair life or wet room.
However in recent years obtaining community care services funding has become increasingly more difficult. Furthermore, often the assessments or care plans are not completed fully or lawfully.
Plym Legal Services specialise in Community Care. We believe that everyone is entitled to the right care and support they need whether that is in their own homes or in a care home. We can help you make the right choices with a clear understanding of the Community Care system and your entitlement.
Already receiving Community Care but feel that it has been wrongly assessed? We are able to advise and help you to identify any problems that you may have experienced when being assessed or when your care plan was completed. If an assessment or care plan has been wrongly completed this can effect how much you are entitled to for care and support. With 18 years experience we can help you get the most out of your Community Care package and ensure that your or your loved one remain independent.

“Sharon has worked with my adult autisic son when both education and the local authority failed him. They refused an assessment and then said he was not eligible for services. With Sharon’s help, not only did they assess, but once further challenged, they offered services to him. We could never have done this alone and Sharon made the experience more bearable. Sharon was able to explain complex legal issues to him in such a way that he could understand. ”
“I am very grateful for the work carried out by Sharon Lamerton at Care or Not Ltd, for the guidance and knowledge, given in a friendly and understandable manner. Sharon targeted and identified where the relevant agency was lacking in their duty which resulted in a successful and speedy outcome. I cannot recommend her efficient, professional service highly enough in the area of special needs care provision. ”
