Helping you find the right care
A professional, affordable, independent service, providing you with all the advice and up to date information you need to choose the right care or care home when you or a relative need it most.
Helping you and your relatives find the right care.
Whether you are looking for care for a loved one, friend, or client, we offer affordable, tailor-made support for your search, based on your own particular needs and circumstances. This support is designed to help you make the right choice when you are considering your care options.
Once we have gained a clear understanding of your requirements, we will come back to you quickly with a comprehensive report giving you all the information you need.
Reviewing Current Care Services
Sometimes families are worried that the care solution in place for an elderly relative may be inadequate in some way. We offer a review service of the current care provision to assess whether or not there is an issue, and if so, what could be done to improve the situation.
We can also help with the following care services.
Specialist help for Dementia Care
In cases of mild or early stage dementia, most care homes and ‘care at home’ providers are willing and able to provide the appropriate level of support and care. For people with more advanced degrees of dementia, there are homes which specialise in providing this type of care – which we can advise on.
Having a good understanding of which providers are suitably qualified and which are not is crucial in being able to deliver the right advice. In this regard we have ‘Dementia Champion’ status at Care Home Finder, which ensures you will be in safe hands.
Specialist help for Respite Care
If you care for a loved one at home, the stresses and strains build up over time and you may feel you need a break. Respite care, which may last a week or two or even longer, means that the relative can be cared for in a suitable care home on a temporary basis with the reassurance that they are being well looked after. We can help you find that appropriate environment. This also applies if they need convalescence after an illness or spell in hospital before they return home.
Hospital discharge service
Elderly people can often find themselves in hospital for an extended period, due to a fall, accident or illness. At some point, they are assessed as being fit for discharge, but may be unable to look after themselves at home. In these situations we can help them and their families either to find a care home or to source a suitable ‘care at home’ solution.
Care at home
Many people prefer to remain in their own home, rather than receive care elsewhere. There is a wide choice of ‘care at home’ providers across the UK, from self-employed individuals through to large, national companies, all of whom are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We can help you find the one that suits you best.
Care services around the clock
In some situations, the individual seeking care may need assistance around the clock. If they wish to remain at home, we can provide you with information, including prices, about the organisations and individuals who are able to provide a well-rated and caring ‘live in’ service.
Assisted living is a type of residential care, which involves an individual or couple residing independently in a specialised complex, with care facilities available if and when required. There is a very wide range of options available, on which we are able to provide advice and recommendations, based on your needs.
Services for Expats
If you are an expat living or working abroad, looking for care options for an elderly relative, we can provide you with a tailored solution, whether for care at home or in a care home. Alternatively, you may be based in the UK, with elderly parents living abroad, who now need to return to the UK and some kind of care. We can help here as well.

Care Home Finder is a service providing much-needed help at the challenging, and sometimes distressing, time of seeking residential care for a friend or relative. Their reports will help you identify homes providing high quality care in line with NICE guidance and standards, drawn from inspections carried out by the Care Quality Commission.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Care Home Finder. Their knowledge of care homes is first class, and their compassionate attitude, integrity and professionalism make them the perfect team to help reduce the stress which can come in such a situation.
I cannot praise Care Home Finder highly enough for their help, without which, my father would still be in hospital and my mother struggling at home with whatever care we could pay for or provide ourselves. The whole process was taken out of our hands, which relieved stress on the family and ensured my parents the best care possible.
About Care Home Finder
The team at Care Home Finder has over 60 years of combined experience in the care sector. We have also all been through the experience of trying to find a care home for a relative – and know what an arduous and stressful task this can be.
We were already helping people to find care homes, mostly via solicitors, friends, relatives and word of mouth, but we wanted to extend our service to a much bigger audience – hence Care Home Finder.
We are a committed group of people, who will do our utmost to help you find what you’re looking for.
