Directory boosts care provision

SCARBOROUGH residents needing social care have been handed a boost.

The North Yorkshire Care Services Directory has been launched to provide information of care homes across the Scarborough area.

Mike Padgham, a Scarborough care provider, said: “The care directory is a comprehensive tool for anyone who is looking for a care home or other type of care provider.

The directory includes practical information on leaving hospital, meals on wheels services, how to find help with transport and equipment for around the home.

The directory is available from Eastfield House day care centre, in Eastway, St Cecilia’s, in Stepney Road, and all North Yorkshire County Council offices.
