Care homes

  • Choice of accommodation

    Local authorities have a responsibility to provide a range of accommodation to meet identified needs at their ‘usual cost’.
  • Permanent residential care

    Our factsheet 'Paying for permanent residential care in Wales' provides information on the financial help that may be available from the local authority.
  • Paying for temporary care

    Some people go into a care home on a temporary basis to give themselves or their carers a break‚ or while they are recuperating from an illness.
