Searching for the right care

How we can help you find the right care for the ones you love

Care Home Finder Bronze Service

What we can do for you

Looking for care is almost always urgent, or an emergency and, with all the different types of care available, unless you know exactly what you are looking for and you know where to find the answers to the many questions you will probably have, it can be incredibly stressful too.

This is true whether you are looking for yourself, a loved one, or you are a professional who is responsible for sourcing care on behalf of a client.


  • Urgent care need for a loved one

  • Hospital discharge

  • Live away from home

  • No experience

  • Unsure of options

  • Don’t know what to look for

  • Don’t know where to start


  • Urgent need for care for a client

  • Need to show due diligence

  • No relevant experience

  • Need to make the right decision

  • Unsure of the options

  • Need professional support

  • Need assistance with the arrangements

Whatever the reason and whatever the care need, Care Home Finder is here to help guide you through the often complex process of finding the right care.

The objective is the same, no matter whether you are family, a friend, or a professional advisor. The data you need is the same and we pay the same careful attention to detail to make sure that you get the right information to help you make an informed decision.

What we do

The first thing we do is to spend a little time, right at the beginning of your search, talking with you about the care requirements and needs. This gives us a really good understanding of the type of care you are looking for and means that our search on your behalf is well focussed, right from the start.

How we do it

Each individual’s care needs are specific, so we draw up a bespoke plan. We also get your permission to discuss the care needs with providers, as this is a fundamental part of sourcing the right care the first time. Once we have listened to your needs and requirements, we:

  • Draw up a profile of the care needed  
  • Prepare a list of potentially suitable providers in your area  
  • Assess and qualify all the providers

We then speak with each provider on your behalf with key questions evaluating:  

  • Whether the right care can be provided 
  • If they have any vacancies/availability, or do they have a waiting list?  
  • What are the fees now and what is included?

And any other relevant questions that will help you make a decision 

Within 48 to 72 hours you will receive our report, which details our findings in an easy to read and understand way. We will talk you through the report and, we will remain available to assist you all the way through the decision making process, if you need us.

What you get

There are many sites that simply provide you with a list of care services, which you then have to assess, shortlist and contact all the providers to make enquiries yourself. Most of these lists include all care providers, including mental health for adults and special needs, making it an even bigger task to carry out.

We have designed a very user-friendly report, which contains all the information that you should need, on relevant services, is right up to date and will help you make a quick and informed decision, including:

  • An overview of each home we have spoken with
  • Vacancies
  • Categories of care provided
  • Current CQC rating
  • Links to the homes’ websites
  • Links to the latest CQC reports
  • Link to an interactive map showing all locations

As we will have discussed the care needs with the care team, when you visit the homes you have chosen to view, or meet with the homecare team, they will already be aware of you and your loved one. This makes the visit much more about the things that are important to you.
