If you find it difficult living at home, you may benefit from moving into a care home. Care homes allow residents to live in comfort with meal provision and permanent staff support.
Care home staff can assist you with everyday tasks such as washing and dressing, and you can receive nursing care where required. As well as the practical benefits, you will be able to build new friendships and explore new hobbies.
Where can I find care homes for veterans?
Blind Veterans UK provide residential care and ongoing support for ex-Service personnel living with sight loss. Their care home fosters a productive environment where veterans can meet to exchange experiences.
The Royal British Legion has six purpose-built care homes for beneficiaries. They provide safe and welcoming accommodation where veterans can live independently and become part of the community. The Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) also provides residential nursing homes. Please be aware that applications for the Break Centre Service have been suspended.
Residential nursing and dementia homes plus short breaks, respite care and day centres are also available for ex-service personnel via the Cobseo Care Home Cluster. Visit the website to see a full directory of contact details for these care homes and services. Please contact each care home directly.
