Getting a place in a care home
The social care department can help you to find a care home even if you plan to fund your own place.
You'll get a list of suitable care homes and help to arrange trial visits.
You should have a choice of different care homes, but the following can limit your options:
- the availability of suitable accommodation in relation to your assessed needs
- whether the cost to the local council (if it's paying towards your care) is more than it usually pays
- whether accommodation is available
- if the care home is willing to provide accommodation
