Care homes offer 24-hour care and support, accommodation and meals. You may need to consider moving into a care home if:
- you can no longer cope living at home, even with extra help and adaptations to your home
- you need more help than sheltered housing or extra care housing can provide
There are 2 types:
- Residential care homes have trained staff to support you with personal care.
- Nursing homes provide personal care and also have trained nursing staff on duty.
How much it will cost
This type of accommodation is expensive. Before moving into a care home, it is worth considering all other options. Find out about paying for residential care.
