Choosing & funding care

We are here to help you find the care that’s right for you.

We know that finding and choosing the right care home, whether for yourself or a loved one, can be daunting. We can help with sources of support and information to help you through this stressful time.

Today there’s more choice than ever before in the number and type of care homes available, but how do you know what to look for? We can guide you through the process of choosing a care home, explaining the different types of residential care home that exist and helping you to find the one that suits the nature and level of support you or your loved one needs.

Your funding options

What happens when you find the right care home? The majority of our customers share a single concern: what’s the best way to fund it? We know that this is such an important issue that we’ve dedicated an entire section of our site to helping you understand your funding options.
