What does it do?
A residential care home normally provides accommodation, meals, and ‘personal care’. Personal care can include such things as assistance in getting up or going to bed, eating, washing, dressing, and using the toilet. It can help you to continue living safely, whilst giving your family or carer peace of mind knowing you are in a safe and supportive environment. Residential care and nursing homes should provide you with;
- day to day support
- a comfortable and safe environment to live in
- activities of real interest and enjoyment
- privacy and dignity
- support for your physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social needs
