These facts should go some way towards helping support this difficult decision. As with most things in life you must find a care home that you or your loved one feels comfortable in. Choosing a home based on location and facilities is relatively simple but deciding on whether a place feels right for you or your relative is more difficult.

In our experience making the transition into a care home gives you or your loved the opportunity to become part of an extended family and can be an enjoyable and stimulating experience as they can become part of a warm, loving environment, where help and care is available at any time of day or night.
