Help and Advice
Here at Majesticare we understand that selecting the right care home is a hugely important decision. We encourage everyone to come and visit our homes before making any decisions and are happy to help with any queries. Below are some helpful pointers to consider when choosing a home and also so useful links which will provide independent advice.
Type of Care
What kind of care are you or your loved ones going to need now and in the future? At Majesticare we specialise in residential personal, nursing and dementia care. Our homes offer one, both or all of these to the highest possible standards.
Quality of Care
Make sure you choose a care home that offers the best possible quality of life and care. Ensure that you ask for a copy of our statement of purpose and take a look at the rating report carried out by our regulator who are the Care Quality Commission. Both documents can be obtained from our homes or you may wish to obtain the rating report by visiting www.cqc.co.uk.
Quality of Life
Choose a care home that more than meets your or your loved one’s personal needs. Somewhere where you can continue to do the things you enjoy – whether that’s reading quietly, having a sing-a-long or something more active like gardening or trips to the shops, seaside and theatres.
