Care Connect is the single point of access for all general health and social care enquiries in North Somerset, outside those provided by your GP.

Care Connect offers impartial advice and can guide you towards social care services offered by the council or put you in touch with voluntary, statutory or private sector organisations.

An integrated team of health and social care professionals work together with Care Connect to give callers access to a range of services.

Help at home

If more help is needed at home then Care Connect can provide information and advice on the range of support available. They can arrange for a worker from Adult Social Services to carry out
a Community Care Assessment to look at the help the person with dementia needs.

Support can be arranged by North Somerset Council following this if they meet the eligibility criteria. A financial assessment will be required to see whether they will be chargeable for any services arranged.

Private care

If you would like to purchase care privately Care Connect can also arrange for you to speak to a Care Navigator for advice and support to do this.
