FAQs about finding a care home

What is a care home?

Care homes - also known as residential homes - provide accommodation and care support for people who are no longer able to live on their own. All care homes will provide personal care, including help with dressing, eating, toileting and medication. There is often a range of social activities for care home residents to try, from painting to day trips out of the home.

What is the difference between a care home and a nursing home?

Care homes and nursing homes are very similar - the only difference is that nursing homes have qualified nurses and specially-trained care assistants that provide round-the-clock nursing and medical assistance. For this reason, nursing homes are often more costly than residential homes. Both types of homes provide everyday care and support for residents.
