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.
At Chosen with Care we are piloting a Free Care Home Advice Line to ensure that families have the information they need to find the very best care homes. We believe that if you really understand what you are looking for you will be able to find a good care home. If you are investigating whether a care home is the best option for yourself or a loved one get it touch, we will talk you through everything you need to know and make sure that you are making the best decisions.
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.
