Care Homes (Paperback)

The One-Stop Guide: When, Why and How to Choose a Care Home

June Andrews

Calm, expert advice on making one of life's most important decisions

Choosing a care home is one of the more emotional and expensive decisions that anyone ever has to make. You may be unprepared, inexperienced, under time pressure and in an emotional whirlwind. This book is designed to cut through this noise and offer clear, practical advice for anyone who has to make this crucial decision.

Professor June Andrews looks at everything that you need to know, from first deciding whether care is needed for someone, to choosing a care home, to what happens next. She offers honest and sensible information about costs, quality of care and accommodation, and examines the finer details of what you might consider, such as food, décor, medical services and religious arrangements.

A good care home is a reward for a life well spent, and providing that care is a joy for the people who do it well. Avoiding the pitfalls, and finding the right place is the first step.
