Finding the right care home in Bristol

Choosing a care home for a loved one can be difficult, however with over 140 care homes in Bristol, and 78 offering specialist dementia care, it is important you make the right decision on which care home is best for your loved one’s needs. Here are a few of our top tips to help you narrow your options.Choosing a care home for a loved one can be difficult, however with 69 care homes in Edinburgh, and 41 of these rated Good or better by the Care Inspectorate (CI), there’s plenty to choose from. Here are a few of our top tips to help you narrow your options and find the right care home for you.

Location, location, location

Transportation to care homes in and around Bristol should not be a problem, with over 140 care homes you should be able to find one to suit. There are several care homes located centrally, including Horfield Lodge, which is a 10-minute drive from the city center and has some excellent public transport links. Or for a 20-minute drive, you could move slightly out of the city to Kingfisher Lodge, in the picturesque village of Saltford and boasting lovely views over the Avon Valley. With all these options it is important to find something that works for you and your loved one.

How to get the 'at home' feeling

As well as deciding on an area for your loved one to live, it is important to consider the facilities available at the care home, and ensure you find one that will help your loved one feel at home. Whilst most of the care homes in Bristol will allow you to move in furniture or to add personal touches to the resident’s room, you need to consider what they enjoy doing with their days and find a home that can accommodate this.

Care homes with gardens

Having outdoor space can mean a lot to people, but think specifically about what your loved one likes to do. Many care homes in Bristol city center offer smaller gardens with lovely patios to relax in the summer. Alternatively, if you venture slightly outside of town, care homes like Beaufort Grange can offer larger landscaped gardens that are ideal for summer BBQs and gentle strolls. Our recommendation is speak to your loved one about what they want from a garden to help narrow down your options.

Pet friendly care homes

Does your loved one have a pet they are worried about leaving when moving into a care home? With about 70 pet-friendly care homes in Bristol, we recommend asking homes about their pet policies as many allow pets to move in with their owner and others, like Kingswood Court Care Homes, allow pets to visit frequently.

Care home activities and days out

To help residents feel at home most care homes in Bristol provide a wide range of activities and facilities, offering residents baking classes, knitting clubs, sing-alongs and movie nights. Most homes even try to organise days out to the park, local pubs/restaurants or the Bristol Old Vic Theatre. So make sure to ask care homes how they could accommodate any of your loved one’s hobbies if they were to move in.
