Help self funders understand their self funding care options; understand care funding jargon and help to guide your self funding care actions.
Before choosing which specific residential care home you would like your parent to move into, you need to be certain that residential care is the best option for their circumstances.
Residential Care is likely to be right for anyone who has trouble doing basic tasks such as dressing, getting in and out of bed, preparing meals, washing etc. You may have some minor age-related ailments, but you will not need constant care from a Nurse.
So, if you only need assistance with personal needs, you should choose a residential home, but if you have more specific needs, a Nursing Home may be a better option.
Choosing a nursing care home can be a lengthy task, because you will probably be looking for a care home that suits the needs of both your parent, and yourself as well as anyone visiting them.
However, making sure that you make the right choice is crucial, because moving a loved one can be a stressful task both emotionally and financially.
Making the Right Decision
The first step is to always ensure that you are working with your loved one, or at least with their best interests at the forefront of everything else. They should be your main priority, even if it means choosing a place that is a little further for you to travel.
