Residential care

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, which need regular help from health professionals.

If your assessment says a care home is the best place for you to live, we can recommend which homes meet your needs and tell you about vacancies. You and family or carer can visit the homes to see if you would be happy there and to ask any questions you may have.
