A care home is a residential setting where a of older people live, usually in single rooms or hotel-style suites, because they need regular or continuous access to care.
Some care homes are registered to provide personal care only, for example help with washing, dressing and giving medication. Others also provide nursing, and will have a nurse on duty twenty-four hours a day. With a few exceptions, accommodation in a care home cannot be bought or rented like retirement housing. Think of them more like full-board hotel accommodation with 24 hour care available.
As with hotels, the cost of living in a care home varies widely according to its location, the size of your room or suite, and the facilities on offer. There is often a substantial difference between fees charged to those who can afford the costs themselves and those who receive help from their Local Authority. A majority of homes aim to cater for both, but some target only one or the other. Care homes are regulated by independent Inspectorates in each country of the UK, subject to periodic inspections and awarded quality grades.
Inspectorate reports and grades are accessible from the care home s on this website.
