When you find a care home that seems suitable, you can visit it more than once. Find out as much as you can about a care home to help you to make an informed choice.

Before visiting a home, take these key steps:

  • Make sure the home provides the level of care you need or could need in the future.
  • Check if the home currently has any vacancies. If it doesn’t, find out how long the waiting list is.
  • Read the home’s brochure or website before your visit, and call or email the home to speak to the staff or manager.
  • Read the most recent inspection report for the home. You can ask the home for it, or look for it on the CQC website.
