Help for Those Considering Care Home Services

Finding the right care home is just one step in choosing the best place for yourself or a loved one. From health needs to financial support, there are many things to consider. To put your mind at ease, we have put together advice to help your through the process of finding the right time to move into a care home, choosing the right care centre, and what you should consider when planning the financial aspects of long-term care.

Making a move into a care home can be a big change, but with the right support and all the information, the transition can be made smooth! If you are not sure if you require a care home, below you will find our care centre advice which will hopefully help you better understand what questions to ask yourself or a loved one to make the right decision. Whether you just need a safe and comfortable home where assistance is always on hand or if your loved one is suffering memory loss and needs dementia care, there are many different types of care homes that can help you.

When you know it is time to find a care home and you have all you need to make an informed decision, the next step is to consider funding long term care centre stays and other financial arrangements for you or your loved one. Whilst all residents need to pay towards residential care and accommodation, this may not be an easy undertaking for everyone. However, there are other options, for example, it is worth looking into financial support from local authorities as well as other third-party payment programs. Take a look at our funding advice page to learn more.
