Residential and nursing care homes

Residential and nursing care homes

A care home is a place to live that also offers personal care services to the people living in the home. For many people, getting a little extra support helps them to stay living independently at home. You might like to look in the care and support area if you're looking for a little extra help.

For some people, sheltered housing or supported housing can be good choices that can help them stay as independent as possible. If it's too difficult to manage living independently, some people feel they need to move to a care home to get the specialist help they need. If you feel that a care home is the best option, there are two main types of home that you could look at: 

  • Residential care homes offer a place to live and personal care services, including meals 
  • Nursing care homes offer nursing care services as well as a place to live and personal care services 

You can find many care homes and nursing homes in the list below as well as places to get more information, like the Care Quality Commission, which regulates and checks care services. NHS Choices provides information on every registered care home in England. Visit the NHS Choices website to find a care home, view ratings and reviews, or add a rating or review about a home.
