What is a Residential Care Home?

A Residential Care Home is a purpose built home of varying sizes where older people live in a private room and have access to qualified carer support with daily living activities like washing, dressing and medication assistance. A Residential Care Home is typically regulated by a governing body like the CQC. Senior residents of an Abbeyfield care home are cooked three nutritious meals a day, eaten in a dining area, and they have access to comfortable and communal areas around the home like lounges, peaceful rooms and well-maintained gardens for relaxing in.
