When deciding on a care home, it is important to have a clear idea of the care you need. If you are unsure, a free care assessment from your local authority can help determine the type of care best suited to your needs. Reading the most recent inspection reports for a care home can also help you make a decision.
The main regulatory body for care homes in England is the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Their reports give insight into how well a home is managed, and the level of care the home provides. You can read through the CQC report for Brookview below. Visiting the home and meeting staff members in person will also help you get a feel for the environment. Call 01246 414618 to schedule a visit to Brookview.
Your local social service department can carry out an assessment of your financial and physical needs. This will help you determine how much you will need to contribute financially and how much the NHS can cover. A professional financial advisor can help you better understand the multiple care funding options that are available to you and decide which ones are best. See carehome.co.uk for additional care fee information.
