Choosing a care home is one of the most important decisions you can make. After all, you want to be sure that your new home offers everything you need and is a place you will be happy to live in. Finding out as much as you can about a home will help you to make an informed choice. Whether you’re looking for a care home for yourself or with support from the local authority, you have a choice as to where you live.

The Age Scotland Care Home Checklist contains some questions that you might want to ask or consider, with space on each page for your comments and a separate page for you to write down any other questions of your own.
