Preparing4Care
“After being in the care industry for over 10 years as a Live In Care Manager, preparing for my own future care was always at the forefront of my mind. You never know what is around the corner and being in the industry has made me realise the importance of completing my own support plan. I love the fact that I can prepare for my future care by completing an online Personal Reference Guide now and know that my family will ensure my wishes will be supported.”

About Us

Preparing4Care is a 100% free service for anyone in the UK that may require short or long-term care, either now or at some point in the future.  Preparing4Care is designed and funded through a partnership between a leading healthcare training provider Training2Care (UK) Ltd, who operate the Virtual Dementia Tour and the Autism Reality Experience and Community Integrated Care, one of the UK’s largest charities providing person centred support to over 3,500 people across the UK.

Together we recognise the need for people to retain a level of control over their care even if they lose the ability to make decisions for themselves.  Preparing4Care provides an important bridge between the individual, their families and their future Health Care Provider, ensuring that care is built around the individual’s needs, wishes and preferences.
