The need for a person to move into a care home can come
about suddenly through a crisis or illness or it may be that after
a lot of consideration, it's felt to be in everyone's best
It's important to think about why you are considering moving the
person you care for into a care home. Is it because other people
have advised it? Or is it you that really want the move to happen?
Would a move to sheltered housing be a better choice, or could home
care or day care provide enough support?
Our advisors have lots of information on the options available.
They may also be able to advise on whether you are eligible for
financial assistance to meet the cost of respite and long term care,
or benefits to help towards your care
