Residential Care Home (Council/Independent/Private)

Our local homes provide residential care.   A residential home may be the answer for you if your needs cannot be met by care at home or supported housing.

Within registered residential homes the following care is provided:

  • health support and visiting health care teams for example your GP, community nurse or physiotherapist
  • help with washing, dressing and giving medication

Some homes are registered for specific care needs for example dementia.

Residential homes:

  • have trained staff who will provide you with care in accordance with National Care Standards.
  • are required to be registered and inspected by the Care Inspectorate
  • do not provide nursing staff but can contact a community nurse to visit you should you need it.
