The role of residential & nursing homes


Care home choosing one to suit your need and budget

Your care home should be a happy and comfortable place to live - in short it should feel like home. Thinking about what you want and need from a care home is a good place to start. Make sure the home provides the level of care you need or could need in the future. Read the home’s brochure or website before your visit and call or email the home to speak to the staff or manager. Read the most recent inspection report for the home. You can ask the home for it or look for it on the CQC website.
