Questions about care answered

AN EXPERIENCED Clevedon nurse has set up a new website offering advice and support for people looking for a care home for a relative.

Questions About Care was created by Karen Jacob of Copse Road who has been a nurse for 45 years and has managed care homes during her career.

The 63-year-old, who is now retired, is keen to make use of her years of experience by passing on advice to those who need it, including those who have concerns about the standards of care being given to an elderly loved one.

She said: “I am very aware that there is very little information out there for people who have problems with a care home. They don’t know who to go to.

“I hope this will give them some power back.
