Choosing a Care Home

Many of our clients have found themselves in a position of looking for Long Term Care provision for a member of their family. This is usually for a parent or grand-parent but is increasingly becoming relevant for those planning for their own needs where they already live alone. The search often starts when the care required is beyond that which family are able or willing to provide or, where the individual requiring care, feels they are keen not to be a burden on their family.
