What is a Residential Care Home?
In the UK residential care home - usually just called Care Homes - are for older people with relatively low care needs. This type elderly accommodation is for people who are frail, but do not require nursing or specialist care. At a Care Home the support services are more along the lines of help with washing, dressing and other daily living activities.
