Finding a care home
If you’re finding it difficult to live independently in your own home, moving into a care home isn’t your only option. We can help you stay in your own home or find out more about your housing options.
Care homes may be privately owned or run by charities or councils. Some will be small care homes based in home-like domestic dwellings, while others will be based in large communal centres.
You will find Care Homes listed in the Bedfordshire and Luton Directory (link opens in new window). The Care Home and Residential Home UK Guide (link opens in new window)also lists all of the care homes, nursing homes and residential homes in the UK. For more information and inspection reports of care homes, go to the Care Quality Commission website (link opens in new window).
