Residential and nursing care homes

Residential and nursing care is for people who cannot continue living in their own home. It can be for a short time, over a longer period or permanently.

Residential and nursing homes provide day to day support, a comfortable and safe environment to live in, activities, support for physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social needs and privacy and dignity for all residents.

A residential care home normally provides accommodation, meals, and personal care. Personal care can include such things as assistance in getting up or going to bed, eating, washing, dressing, and using the toilet. Staff are usually available 24 hours a day. A nursing care home provides additional medical support.
