According to the findings of two separate studies conducted by a consumer watchdog, families and those looking for information on care, or trying to organise care for themselves or a loved one, are being left confused by the information they receive.
The findings of the first study, which required a small sample of people to keep a diary as they looked for information regarding care for either themselves or a loved one, found that many are left with a maze of confusing information.
Results from the study also found that those who are not eligible for state-funding reportedly found it difficult to receive even simple information and advice in regard to care.
In addition, a separate study which involved surveying 1,000 people who are likely to be looking at care options either for a loved one or themselves over the next couple of years, found that as many as four in ten people were unsure where to turn for advice and information.
In addition, half of those who participated in the survey admitted that they did not know where to go for advice and information relating to care which would enable them or a loved one to continue living at home.
