Sometimes staying in your own home becomes too difficult. This may be because of the medical treatment you need or because you cannot complete day-to-day tasks. You may be wondering whether you need to move into a care home.
Have you spoken to someone about the things you are finding difficult? If not, please do get in touch to find out how to get information and advice about care and support. One of our care advisers will help you make the decision about what type of accommodation will suit you best or whether, with some support, you could stay in your own home. They may talk to you about extra care or sheltered/retirement housing.
Perhaps you feel your needs have changed and that you have reached the stage of considering a move into a residential care or nursing home. Make sure you speak to the people in charge of your care, to discuss this decision.
Do make sure you get financial advice before moving into a care home so you know what you can afford. Find out more in our money and legal section.
