Residential care

If the person you are looking
after is no longer able to live independently at home because their
care needs have increased, and for whatever reason you can no longer
provide the care they need, residential care can be a sensible and
realistic option.

This section includes information that can help with:

  • making the decision that residential care might be an option for the person you are looking after
  • finding a residential care home
  • paying for residential care
  • the possible impact on any benefits that you or the person you are looking after may receive
