Care homes

There are three types of care home:

  • residential homes that provide accommodation, meals and 24-hour personal care and attention, but do not provide nursing care;
  • nursing homes that provide all of the services above and also provide regular nursing care, which can only be provided by a qualified nurse or under the direct supervision of a qualified nurse; and
  • care homes that provide both residential and nursing care, which means a wide range of services can be given.
