If residential care is deemed to be the best option for your care and support needs, check:
• How does the home meet national essential standards of quality and safety, laid down by the Care Quality Commission?
• Does the home have close links with Adult Services?
• Does the home offer personalised care and support to enable you to become as
independent as possible?
• Do you have choice and control over your care and support?
For more information on choosing a care home, please see the care homes checklist on page 55.
