Take the Time to Visit

It’s important to visit all the care homes on your shortlist when choosing a care home, to get as much information as you can. Consider what’s important, ranging from practical issues such as the social activities on offer, to questions about the care home contract, the available rooms and what else happens in and around the home.

If possible, visit the care home with a family member or friend so that you can compare notes afterwards with the benefit of two opinions.
