It is very important to make the right choice when choosing a home. You should always have the right to exercise choice and control over your life.

In the Home you should be supported to do as much as you can and want to do and be helped to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Whether or not you have a council aided assessment, the care home you choose should work with you to devise a care plan specific to your needs and what you want to achieve in the future.

You should be able to invite visitors into your room and bring in some of your personal possessions.

Living in a care home does not mean you lose any of your rights as a citizen and if you wish to continue to vote in elections for example, you are always free to do so.

The Commission for Quality Care in England checks that care homes meet national standards. It is important that you feel safe and well looked after where you live and that national standards are met. You can access Inspection reports on homes either on the internet or from your local authority who will also provide you with a list of preferred providers in the area you choose.

The cost of care can be confusing and misleading at times with ever changing state regulations on funding so we have extracted some useful information from the Age UK guidelines to assist you in understanding the complexities of what is available in terms of NHS or Social Services funding.

Rowallan care fees are all inclusive covering 24 hour care, home cooked meals, all utilities and laundry services.

The only extras are for newspapers if required or for visiting services such as hairdressing or chiropody.
