Maggie Holloway, Care Advice Team Manager, on a home visit

Care Advice direct to your door One of the increasingly vital services the RMBI offers is the Care Advice Visiting Team. The Team was initially set up to help prospective residents and annuitants, and now works increasingly alongside Lodge Almoners to help older Freemasons and their dependants. Over 3,000 people living in the community benefit from this service.
    Many peopleís problems can be alleviated by the advice and support offered by our Care Advice Team. The Team works by visiting people in their own homes to offer their wide range of experience and knowledge relating to health and welfare rights as well as benefits.
    In addition to being able to advise about all aspects of the services offered by the RMBI, the Care Advice Team can advise on the services and benefits available from other statutory and voluntary agencies.
    People on the Homesí waiting lists are visited, as are a small number of people who have no financial worries but have other problems arising from their care needs or concern for the future.
    The Team now has a new manager. Until recently, Maggie Holloway was the Home Manager at the RMBIís Shannon Court in Surrey and has worked for the RMBI for over 11 years. She is now using this experience to head up the Care Advice Visiting Team.
    If you or someone you know would benefit from the experience of the team, then please call the RMBI on 0800 068 7624.

RMBI Website

And speaking of the RMBI website, itís a good time to log on. We have some new pages and have updated the information on all our Homes. There is detailed information about the care we provide, including respite care, news about the RMBI and ideas about how you can help us.
    The RMBI website is an excellent resource for anyone who is thinking about entering one of our Homes themselves, or for someone who has the responsibility of finding high quality residential care for another person.
    We would also encourage Lodge Almoners to pay a visit to familiarise themselves with the services we offer.
