Choosing The Right Care Home | Sheffield

Choosing a Care Home

Choosing a care home for yourself or a loved one can be a difficult decision to make. It is important to choose a place that meets any social, mental and health-care needs. If you are considering residential care, one of the early steps is to get a free needs assessment from your local social services department. A professional assessment can help you understand the level and type of support needed and allow you to choose the care home best suited to these needs.

Ratings from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) can be another helpful tool for choosing the best care home. The CQC performs in-depth assessments on the quality of care homes throughout England. You can find Meadow Grange’s CQC report below.

Visiting care homes and talking to the staff is often a big help in making a decision. To make an appointment to visit Meadow Grange and meet our care home manager, call 01142 891110.

Paying for Care

For those assessed as needing continuous health care, you might have to use personal funds to pay for your care home fees if you are not eligible for governmental support. Your local authority can perform a financial assessment to determine how much you should contribute to your care home fees. There are various financial advisors who can help you navigate the care funding options available to you and decide the best route to take. Please visit for additional information on care fees.
