Residential care homes help people who can no longer manage to look after themselves at home due to frailty, mobility problems or other issues that may occur with older age.

Nursing care homes help people with complex medical problems, who need regular help from health professionals.

After your care assessment, if we decide that a care home would be the best place for you to live, we can recommend homes which may suit your needs and tell you about vacancies. You and your family or carer can visit the homes to see them for yourselves, and ask any questions you may have.
