More information about Residential Care Homes

What is residential care?

Residential care homes offer support for everyday tasks when you’re unable to live on your own and you don’t need specialist nursing care. From help with washing, dressing and medication, residential care offers round-the-clock support for residents.

Even if you don’t require nursing care support, all our residential homes will be in regular contact with local GPs, physiotherapists and dentists who can support you.

We understand that moving into a residential care home is a huge change, so let our team of care experts find the right home for you.

Cost of residential care

Depending on your location and any additional care needs, residential care can vary in cost. The average cost of residential care in England is £681 and provides all residents with round-the-clock support for everyday tasks, including washing, dressing and mobility.

Residential care facilities

All our residential care homes offer a variety of facilities and activities to keep you or your loved one both mentally and physically stimulated. From 24/7 personalised care and support to freshly prepared meals, our residential care provides all residents with a home-from-home environment.

You can filter by facilities available in our residential care homes to suit your personal needs. Whether you’d like your new home to have a library, meditation area or cinema room, there’s something for everyone!

All our homes offer a variety of regular social activities - often ran by an activities coordinator - to boost your physical health and wellbeing, including exercise classes, arts and crafts, and music therapy.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for additional support, we have dementia care homes and nursing care homes available.
