Care home accommodation and support options are available if you or someone you know is no longer able to remain at home safely.
Search for a care home
Residential homes offer the same care and help that you would get if a relative or friend looked after you. Staff in a care home can help you with:
- washing and dressing
- meal times
- going to the toilet
- help and support to gain skills that can help you to be independent
Choose a care home
Visit the home wih your family or friends. There’s a trail period of up to 4 weeks before you finally make up your mind.
Paying for your care in a home
We will help you to pay the fees for residential care if we think this is the kind of help you need, and if we think you can’t afford to pay for it yourself.
Comments and complaints
If you have any comments or suggestions about a home please tell the staff, manager or matron at the home.
Many homes have a ‘residents committee’ where you can put forward your ideas.
