Selecting a care home is a very important decision; there are so many things to consider, for example: level of care, location, facilities, recommendations and cost. The choice can only be made if you are well informed and know the right questions to ask. This section advises on some of these key areas.

Choosing the right care home is, in many ways, just like choosing any other place to live. It is imperative to visit several homes to compare and contrast various facilities and services. To help you do this effectively we’ve also created a checklist which we advise that you print out and take with you when you visit your potential homes. This will ensure that you ask all those practical questions that will be crucial in helping you choose the correct care home to suit your needs.
