Few things make you feel more vulnerable than realising, at crisis point, that you don't know who to turn to, what questions to ask, or what actions to take next.
All too often, facing the fact that a much-loved parent, grand-parent, husband or wife, needs a care home only happens when an unexpected accident has left them unable to cope. You find your relative in hospital and then suddenly the NHS is relying on you to find a solution about where mum should convalesce - quickly.
Often you can be pressurised to find somewhere, rather than 'bed blocking' in hospital.
It can be daunting to the point of being overwhelming. But there is help, support and understanding nearby. We offer a personalised service that can help you find the right place. By working with you to find the ideal care home solution, whether for respite care or a long-term placement we will make sure you don't make a mistake when you are under pressure.

Just a quick update – I’ve now visited all but one of the Nursing Homes in the report, and we have decided on Gloucester House in Sevenoaks, which Mum is happy with. It is actually 5 minutes from my Brother’s house, but we didn’t even know it was there so we are grateful for Chosen with Care for letting us know if it’s existence!
Mum moves in during week commencing 30th January, so she should be settled in in time for her Birthday so we will have a little ‘room-warming/birthday party’ that weekend.
I think that being so close to my brothers house will help her settle in and feel at home. thanks so much for your help.
