New website to help find suitable residential and nursing care homes for older people
A new website has launched to help people in Essex find a suitable care home for themselves or a loved one.
Essex County Council, working in partnership with the NHS, has launched a new website to help people find a suitable care home for themselves or a loved one.
The new website is www.essexcaresearch.org
Essex Care Search can be used to find residential, nursing, dementia or respite care home vacancies for older people within Essex.
You can search for vacancies by location, cost, type of care and facilities in the care home.
The site has detailed information on all the homes that are registered including contact details, CQC ratings and photographs.
Whether you are looking for short term care, longer term care, a central location with specialist room features, or an en-suite bedroom in a home by the coast, Essex Care Search can help you to find a care provider.
Cllr John Spence, Essex County Council Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care, said: “Enabling residents to have access to a choice of quality care facilities in every part of the county is a key objective for us. We hope this new website will make that access still easier”.
Go to www.essexcaresearch.org and start your search.
