Residential care and nursing homes
Residential care and nursing homes are for people over the age of 18 who are no longer able to live independently in their own home due to physical or learning disabilities, sight or hearing loss, frailty or illness. In certain circumstances, short term places can be available for people who are recovering from illness after being discharged from hospital, or to give carers a break from their caring responsibilities.
If you think moving to a care home, either temporarily or permanently, could be an option for you or someone you care for, contact Adult Social Care for a discussion about the support needs that you or the person you care for require. Adult Social Care can help to consider all the options that are available.
The cost of residential and nursing homes varies, often depending on the type of facilities provided and the amount and type of care you need. As part of the discussion with Adult Social Care, you can also find out any financial implications associated with care home fees.
