What to consider when looking for a care home

Council and Care logoCounsel and Care has published a Care Home Handbook, available free for older people, their families and carers.

Care Home Handbook front coverThis edition provides vital information for anyone who may be considering care in a care home, and for people who are exploring options on behalf of someone they advise or care for.

The Care Home Handbook sets out clearly the rights that a person has, the choices they can make depending on their situation, and the control and independence they should be able to retain throughout. It guides the reader through the different options available for funding care and gives advice on how to choose a care home that suits a person's individual needs.
