Rarely a day goes by without negative stories about care homes either on News at Ten or in the press. This last week has been no exception as the CQC has released a report stating that 20% of care homes are failing.
It has never been more important to make sure that the choices you are making about a residential care home or a nursing home - are the right ones.
At Chosen with Care we are piloting a Free Care Home Advice Line to ensure that families have the information they need to find the very best care homes. We believe that if you really understand what you are looking for you will be able to find a good care home. If you are investigating whether a care home is the best option for yourself or a loved one get it touch, we will talk you through everything you need to know and make sure that you are making the best decisions.
I had to call you this morning to thank you for your support and advice at a very difficult time.
Without having met me, or my Mum, Debbie understood exactly what was needed and the home she recommended was indeed perfect. When Dad and I visited we recognised immediately it was spot on for mum.
As a first step she is trying out another home that she has heard good things about - and we must respect her views - but I have Debbie and my preferred choice up my sleeve as a next step. I have recommended Chosen with Care to a friend in a similar position and would not hesitate to do so again. Thank you Debbie.
