Rarely a day goes by without negative stories about care homes either on News at Ten or in the press. This last week has been no exception as the CQC has released a report stating that 20% of care homes are failing.
It has never been more important to make sure that the choices you are making about a residential care home or a nursing home - are the right ones.

I was finding it extremely hard to find a care home to take my husband, who had very challenging behavioural problems and had been asked to leave his existing care home. Chosen With Care worked for a month contacting homes, explaining the problems, visiting the homes and arranging assessments, eventually finding somewhere to take him. Debbie has always been available to help and support, and I feel I have a friend who really cares about me and my husband.
