A personal budget gives you more choice and control over your care and support. If you have been assessed and qualify for support you can let the NHS or Local Authority organise and manage your care. The Local Authority may do this themselves or they may work with a local, trusted and registered independent care provider. Essential Nursing & Care Agency work with a number of service users in this way.
Alternatively you may decide to have a Direct Payment which means you receive the payment and are free to select your own care and support. You decide who supports you, when and how. If you don’t want to look after the money yourself but want to keep control on how the budget is spent, we can manage this for you too.
