Making the initial decision to look at care for an elderly loved one can be one of the most difficult decisions any of us make. There is a raft of information available for people looking into this approach for care.

One of the key decisions that many people face is assessing the individual need for care, there are many people who can help organise this, from social services, hospitals and a care home itself.  Please bear in mind that you have a fundamental right to choose the care home that is right for you, although social services can help lead the way the choice is yours.

Tameside council offer ChoicE to help residents and their families gauge the requirements for care. If we can be any help or if you require further information please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
