How to decide if a care home is right for you

Things to consider before choosing a care home:

  • where it is (location) – for example, do you want to be near your family or local shops?
  • how much it costs
  • whether they offer the right services or activities you need
  • how visiting and leaving the care home works – for example, do you want to be able to go out on your own or with staff assistance?

Signs of a good care home include:

  • staff and managers with the right time, skills and experience to do their jobs
  • clean buildings, rooms and bathrooms
  • a wide range of activities for residents at home and outside
  • good quality food choices and options about where to eat meals
  • fast and easy access to health professionals, such as GPs and dentists
  • the care home makes sure any cultural, religious or lifestyle needs are met
  • feedback from residents is asked for and used to improve care
