Visits to council care homes
  • Visits are by appointment only.
  • Most visitors won't require a test although they will continue to be provided to a small number of visitors who provide personal care.
  • No visits, including by essential care givers, will be permitted if there is an outbreak in the home.

These measures help to reduce the risk of residents and staff contracting COVID-19.


Visits to private care homes

Contact the care home directly to arrange a visit and find out their testing requirements.


Day care and respite services

We are gradually reopening council-run day care services. Services will be in touch with families to make arrangements.

The type of care home which is best for you depends upon what your needs are.

You could apply for a care home as a self-funder and pay for it privately if you have funds to do so.

However, if you require financial assistance you will need to find out whether you are eligible and have your needs assessed. Please Contact adult social care services

Different types of care homes

One of the first things to consider when choosing a care home is whether you need it to provide nursing care, or personal care.

Residential care homes

A residential care home registered to provide personal care can help you with things like:

  • eating meals
  • washing
  • going to the toilet
  • taking your medicine

Nursing care homes

If you need nursing care, a nursing home will be more suitable. For example, a nursing home will specialize in certain types of disability or health conditions such as dementia or complex care needs.

These types of care homes provide 24-hour nursing care by qualified nurses and healthcare assistants. There will always be nursing staff on duty.
