Care homes, sheltered housing and supported living

We will work with you to keep you as independent as possible for as long as possible, but there may come a time when you consider moving into a residential home.

Residential homes are able to offer 24-hour support for people who require it, this could be on a long or short term basis. Residential homes are designed to feel like a home from home and are able to meet a range of needs including those of people with dementia or learning disabilities.

Financial assistance towards residential care

The costs of residential homes vary, often depending on the type of facilities provided and the amount and type of care you need. If you require a nursing home to meet your nursing needs you may be entitled to a contribution from the NHS regardless of your income or savings. This would be paid directly to the nursing home.
