When you contact us we will always do our best to understand your requirements and give our honest opinion on what is suitable and how we can help you.
Search for care homes near me
The first step is to search online for care homes near me. If you are not sure where to look then carehomes.co.uk is a very popular starting point with lots of information and reviews on care homes around the UK. Take time to view the details of each care home and find out if it provides the level of care you need. It’s a good idea to put together a shortlist of care homes in your area which you are interested in.
View the website and brochure
Once you have worked out which care homes seem suited to you, spend time looking at their websites. Many care homes spend time updating their websites with recent activities and things like menus, facilities and pictures. You can also look at the care home brochure and when you are ready it’s time to book a visit.
Arrange a visit
The easiest thing to do is call up your care home of choice and ask them to book a visit for you. At Surecare we have dedicated staff who will happily book you in for a visit with your family so you can spend time at the care home and get a better feel for it. By visiting a care home you will also get to see it’s location, transport links and nearby amenities.
Make sure to ask questions
Once you are at the care home feel free to ask as many questions as you want. This is your time to find out whether you will fit in at the care home and whether the environment is friendly and welcoming. It’s worth putting together a list of questions and we have found the Age UK Care check is a great place to begin. Our managers are always on hand to answer any questions you may have during your visit.
Have a good look around
When you come to visit a Surecare care home we will happily show you around the rooms and grounds. We take pride in the cleanliness of our care homes and we love to show off our communal areas, kitchen facilities and gardens. We will always do our utmost to make you feel comfortable and allow you enough time to look at everything you need to.
Discuss your dietary requirements and other interests
If you choose to come to a Surecare care home then we want to make sure all of your individual requirements are met and so it’s always a good idea to let us know what you expect. Whatever your interests or hobbies include, if you speak to us we can advise on how we can incorporate them into your stay. Also if you have any particular dietary requirements then our kitchen staff will always work hard to ensure they are met.
