Choosing a Care Home

Looking for a care home for your loved one can be a daunting task. Often families do not know what to look for in a care home, or what specific needs will need to be catered to. It is important to find a care home where your family member will be comfortable in their surroundings while also receiving the best care possible. The White House has laid out some important considerations when selecting the best care facility for you or loved one.

Step One: Identify Your Needs

The care home you select for your loved one or patient should be based on the level of care they require. Whether they need a safe and secure place to stay or require special care for dementia, the care home you choose should facilitate every need.

Step Two: Look At the Location

The next thing to consider is location. It is important to select a location close to friends and family members that will allow easier visits to the patient.

Step Three: Look At Quality Standards

Your next step is looking at quality standards. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is an independent regulator of care homes and performs in-depth assessments of care homes throughout the UK. The assessments are carried out to measure the level of quality care in these homes. You can find The White House CQC report below.

Paying for Care

There are three options available to help you pay for care. They are government support, self-funding, and receiving support from charities. Depending on your own financial situation, you may be eligible for government assistance to cover some or all of your care costs. If you do not qualify for government assistance, you might have to use personal funds to pay for your care. There are various financial advisors that can help you navigate through funding options. Please see for more fee information.
