If you are living at home and cannot cope with the challenges of old age on your own, you may benefit from moving into a care home. Care homes allow residents to live in comfort with meal provision and permanent staff support.
Beneficiaries can be assisted with everyday tasks such as washing and dressing, and can receive nursing care where required. As well as the practical benefits, you will be able to build new friendships and explore new hobbies.
The Citizens’ Advice Bureau provides information about care homes in Scotland and links to relevant support.
Where can I find care homes?
The Armed Services Advice Project (ASAP) offers information and support to service and ex-Service personnel in Scotland. They offer advice on housing and, depending on availablility in your area, may be able to help find local care homes. To find out more, contact ASAP by emailing ASAP@CAS.org.uk or visit the website ASAP Advice for more options.
