Care Homes

If you can no longer cope in your own home, or if you need 24-hour care, a care home may be the best option for you.

There are different types of care available:

  • residential care homes have trained staff and provide 24-hour care. They can also arrange for a community nurse to visit when needed
  • nursing care homes' trained staff includes nurses.


If you have family or people you would like to be near and the care home is suitable for your assessed needs, we can sometimes arrange a place in a care home outside the Renfrewshire Council area.

The assessment and funding process is the same as if you were being admitted to a local authority care home.

If you'd like further information on care homes, including charges, assessment and eligibility, this is provided below.
