There are a number of Bexley Care homes that provide long-term care for people who can no longer remain safely at home even with support.
Choosing a care home involves making some important decisions. You should visit several homes before you decide, as every home has something different to offer
You can also obtain inspection reports on the home which are available from the Care Quality Commission.
What are the different types of care home available?
A care home
This type of home aims to meet your personal and social care needs. You will have your own bedroom unless you choose to share and have use of all the communal areas or facilities provided in the home. The staff in a residential home can help with personal care needs such as washing, taking a bath and dressing etc. All meals are provided and there are activities that you can take part in. Each care home will have its own activities programme.
A care home with nursing
This type of home is managed in the same way as a residential care home. However, this type of placement aims to meet the needs of people who need 24-hour nursing care, which can only be provided by a qualified nurse or under the direct supervision of a nurse.
Placements for people with dementia care needs
There are care homes and care homes with nursing that meet the needs of individuals who have a diagnosis of dementia and require specialist care that cannot be provided in a conventional care home.
