Does anyone know of any care advocacy services that deal with cognitively aged appropriate adults?

    Hey @katiekoo. Could you please clarify what you mean by "cognitively aged appropriate adults"?

    I just want to make sure we hear you as clearly as we can and can support you the best way we can. If you mean older people, some resources you might find useful are:

    • Age UK's Advice and Advocacy (the link for this depends on your location) 
    • Your local authority
    • NHS
    I hope this is at least semi-helpful. Please don't hesitate to let me know if I have misheard you though or if you would like to talk this through further with us  :)
