The main options facing people who have long-term care needs are:
|Type of care home||What they offer|
|Residential care homes||Personal care, such as washing, dressing, taking medication and going to the toilet. They may also offer social activities such as day trips or outings.|
|Nursing homes||Provide personal care as well as assistance from qualified nurses. Sometimes called care homes with nursing.|
|Care homes with dementia care||Designed to make people with dementia feel comfortable and safe.|
|Dual-registered care homes||Accept residents who need both personal care and nursing care. This means that someone who initially just needs personal care but later needs nursing care won’t have to change homes.|
|Domiciliary care||Domiciliary care is provided to people who still live in their own homes but who require additional support with household tasks, personal care or any other activity that allows them to maintain their independence and quality of life.|
|Respite care||Respite care means taking a break from caring, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else.|
|End of life care||End of life care aims to support someone in the later stages of a life-limiting condition to live as well as possible until they die.|
|Assisted living||Assisted living is a type of ‘housing with care’ which means you retain independence while you're assisted with tasks such as washing, dressing, going to the toilet or taking medication.|
|Intermediate care||Intermediate care (IC) is non means-tested, time-limited, short term support. IC services must be free for the first six weeks or if the agreed timescale is less than six weeks, for that period. While a local authority has the power to charge if IC extends beyond six weeks, it has discretion to extend provision of free services.|
