We provide a variety of long-term care types to suit your loved one’s needs and desires 

What is the purpose of long-term care? 

Care UK homes provide a range of long and short-term care types to support older people to live fulfilling lives.  

While short-term care, such as respite or convalescent care, offers individuals a temporary stay in one of our care homes, long-term or permanent care is available for those who require ongoing support with their personal care, health and wellbeing. 

Who needs long-term care? 

Long-term care supports older people who live with progressive conditions like dementia, who have become frailer in their older age or who simply want to enjoy the comforts of life without the pressure of daily tasks like cooking, cleaning or laundry.

We offer different types of long-term care depending on your loved one’s needs, including:
