Mum was in the home until she died. The care home exceeded her expectations and she never failed to praise the high standard of cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff, which were important to her. We were kept informed and any problems were dealt with efficiently and swiftly. The lively activities and trips out helped stimulate her. The home respected Mum at all times and her visitors were warmly welcomed with hospitality and spoke highly of the standard of care. Significantly the carers who met mum on her arrival were with her at the end. I will always be grateful for the realistic and sensitive approach to end of life care, which enabled Mum to have a peaceful and dignified death in familiar surroundings and with the people she loved. She chose the home from th ecare homes on Hertfordshire Online.

The Best Care Homes In Hertfordshire

The number of Care Homes in Hertfordshire is growing by the year. Hertfordshire has many excellent and extensive care homes offering superb facilities. These care homes often specialise in one or more different types of care. From Long Term Residential Care to Short Term Stay to Dementia Care and Respite Care which include Holiday Breaks. They all have the same aim, to offer the very best help for older people and improve their way of life.

The homes are usually in very safe environments. With Hertfordshire’s beautiful countryside, some of the homes are set in the most scenic surroundings.

With the increasing awareness and understanding of dementia over recent years it is no surprise that the number of care homes specialising in dementia care has grown considerably. Dementia care is becoming more and more important and the best care homes in Hertfordshire offer Dementia Care Seminars. These seminars are for carers and families caring for a loved one with dementia. The seminars help to understand what someone with dementia is experiencing and teaches us about the small things we can do to help. This care has now improved so much in recent years that a network has grown to assist families to share their experiences. There are even pioneering Virtual Dementia Tours where people can wear a head set to see what it’s like for people with dementia. Some Hertfordshire homes are leading the way in this new technology.

Short Stay, Respite and Holiday breaks

Many homes in Hertfordshire offer short stay, respite care and holiday breaks. This respite or convalescence care is a short stay solution for individuals who maybe looking for extra support following post-operative or hospital care. Or sometimes the short stays are taken whilst a regular carer takes a break. Or it could be for just a break. These respite care packages offered by Hertfordshire care homes often cover both residential and specialist dementia care can be anything from a couple of weeks to a few months to offer families the reassurance that their loved one is enjoying exceptional care within a friendly, enabling and stimulating and enjoyable environment. The finest homes offer a personalised assessment, individual care plans, fully furnished rooms and the opportunity to enjoy seven days a week engagement & lifestyle programme.

The top care homes in Hertfordshire now offer financial surgeries to assist people in Hertfordshire care homes. 43% of people are faced with funding their own care and only 10% of these seek proper financial advice.

Choosing a Care Home in Hertfordshire

It is so important to find the right care home that's right for you or for the person who's going to live there. Hertfordshire has an abundance of care homes & not all are the same. Many care homes do specialise in different types of care. Care does vary from Respite Care to care for a holiday or short break. Some offer day care breaks and others offer long term residential care. Other types of care are Convalescent Care, Dementia Care, Disability Care or Palliative Care. The care homes often specialise with personal care, such as washing and dressing. Other care homes offer nursing care, as well as the basic help.

Need a care home or a nursing home?

It is often the last resort and a very difficult decision to move a loved one or family member to a home. It can often be the best option for both of you. The person you are caring for needs the best care in older age and needs to be looked after properly. It’s normal to feel that you are struggling and that the person you are caring for needs some full-time care and attention. Care homes and nursing homes are designed to improve a person's quality of life whilst they can still maintain their freedom. It can be confusing to decide what kind of care your loved one needs. It is important to look at all the care homes and nursing homes in Hertfordshire or the area that you are looking at in order to assess which option best suits the person you are caring for. Always keep in mind their illness or condition if they have one and how their needs may change and develop over time.

Care Homes

A care home provides a 24-hour care service for your loved ones from qualified carers. Carers will help and provide your loved one with everything from washing, dressing, going to the toilet, eating and getting about, depending on their needs. When it comes to administering medication or if a resident injures themselves and dressing is required, a district nurse will need to be called out. A number of care homes offer that extra care and support, often due to dementia.

Nursing Homes

A nursing home will provide its residents with the same care as a care home, the only difference is the carers are registered nurses rather than carers. This makes them better homes for those with a long-term illness or medical condition. Nurses are obviously better qualified when it comes to dealing with conditions and will know when to call a doctor and be able to notice changes in a person’s health. Nursing homes are also better equipped with special beds and other equipment to assist those with mobility issues. A nursing home is the best option for someone whose health may decline in a short space of time. Searching in Hertfordshire is a great place to start if you're considering a residential or nursing home. Hertfordshire is ideal for many factors as well as the homes themselves with often beautiful landscapes, walks, rivers and canals. Hertfordshire's care homes are often ideal for family members to visit and walk with a loved one. Short break and long break homes are plentiful in Hertfordshire. By searching the care home’s directory, you can also see which homes have vacancies and you can search by location too. There are many homes to browse for in all towns in Hertfordshire.

Paying for a Care Home

Everyone has to pay something towards their care home but how much you pay will depend on your financial situation, what care home you choose and the level of services you need will often determine this. All homes will chat with you about your needs and your day-to-day life or the person who needs a home. So, if you find the home that’s right the best thing is to speak with them and the costs and if they offer financial guidance that suits you. Around 140,000 people go into care every year. 43% of these are people faced with funding their own care and only 10% of these seek proper financial advice. The £72,000 care cap has been abandoned and while we wait for the government to publish a Green Paper on care and support for older people in the Autumn, people may want to explore and understand how they can cap costs themselves. The best care homes and companies representing them are committed to supporting families through their care decisions and like to invite people to Financial Surgeries. The consultations take approximately 30 minutes with a care fees specialist from organisations, who will provide information and advice on your funding options. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspects all care homes regularly to check the standard of care and quality of life that you or your loved one will receive at a particular home.
