Tips for Finding the Perfect Residential Home

16 Nov 2022 | Category: Blog

Finding the right care services for your loved one can sometimes feel like a stressful task, as you focus on ensuring your family member is cared for in the best way.

In this blog, we will look at some of the key considerations you should make before deciding to ensure your choice is informed.


Make Sure the Home Provides All the Support they Need

The most important factor to consider when finding a house for your loved ones is ensuring their requirements can be met.

On top of ensuring they receive the right care, tailored support, and comfortable accommodation, you should also consider the opportunities for independence and development.

It is important that residents get opportunities to integrate within the community, build relationships with the people around them, attend places of work, volunteer, learn and take part in regular activities based on their interests.


Check if the Home Currently has Vacancies

The earlier you start the search for the right residential home, the better chance you have of finding the perfect place for your loved one.

Talk to the residential home you are interested in about their availability. You can also check the status of vacancies on sites such as ‘CareUK.’

Do not be disheartened at hearing a home is full. You can be placed on the waiting list until there is space to accommodate your loved one.


Check Their Website and Speak To Members of the Staff

You can never do enough research when making important decisions about residential care.

We recommend you get multiple perspectives on life at residential homes. Look at the website, check out brochures, speak to someone on the phone and arrange to look around the place.

Finding out about the experiences of existing residents will also help to give you even more insight into the care and support provided.


Find Their Most Recent Home Inspection

By checking the CQC website, you can find the most recent home inspection information for any residential home you are interested in, including Lisieux Trust.

It provides an impartial viewpoint on the residence, helping you to understand how they operate.
