What do we mean by 'Residential Care'?
Residential care is for people who cannot continue living in their own home, even with support from home care services. You can stay in residential care for a short time (known as respite care), over a longer period or permanently. You would stay in a comfortable, furnished room (in some places you could bring your own furniture with you) and staff are available 24 hours a day.
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, using the toilet and help with medication administration.
Who is Residential Care for?
There is a wide range of reasons for needing this type of support. 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 provides 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
If you are unable to continue living at home and are thinking about living in a residential care home you may need to contact your local Adult Social Care office in the first instance. They will talk to you about the support you may need. This is called an assessment and will determine whether you require residential, nursing or dementia care. If you are funding your own care, you can be assessed by the Manager of the care centre.
