A step by step guide to finding the best care home - Part 5
Once you have narrowed your home down to the final one or two, go back for a second visit and have lunch. If possible take your relative or another family member.
Ensure you talk to the Manager and make sure that you get on with her and feel reassured that she is the best person to look after your relative.
If you would like some support in making this crucial decision Debbie Harris is an independent care home finder with many years experience.
Debbie will research care homes that meet your individual needs and view them on your behalf. She will then present you with shortlist of suggested homes that meet your requirements, saving you a huge amount of time and reassuring you that you have made the best choice for your relative.
Whilst struggling to identify the right type of care and provider for our mother who has been diagnosed with vascular dementia and Alzheimers, myself and my sister and brother came across Chosen With Care. We cannot praise their service enough. The time and care taken not only during their search, but before and after with no extra cost, illustrates their commitment to doing the best they can for their clients. Particularly reassuring is the fact that, unlike other advisers in this field, Chosen With Care do not benefit from referral fees, so we were reassured that their advice was completely independent. If any more reassurance is needed, you only have to watch the TedX talk given by owner and founder Debbie Harris to see how passionate Chosen With Care are about changing and raising standards within the care industry.
