Can I choose the home I want?

If you are paying all of the fees yourself you can choose whichever Home you feel best suits you/your relatives needs which is in your price range.

If the Local Authority is assisting with the funding cost it does not mean that you have to choose one of their own run homes. You can request any Home that accepts residents funded by the Local Authority, however the Local Authority will ensure that the Home of your choice is suitable for the needs determined in the Care Plan. The Local Authority will also need to ensure that the Home of your choice does not cost more than it would usually pay for the level of care required.
