Care Homes in Alston

Making the decision to move into a care home can be stressful.

Alongside the emotions associated with this major life decision, there are logistics and practical factors to consider, too. TrustedCare’s online directory has been designed to make it as easy and stress-free as possible for you to find a residential care home in Alston that will help you to embark on your journey to an easier future.

At TrustedCare we understand that, rather than signalling the end of one era, a move into a care home can be the beginning of a new one, where a care seeker can enjoy life and maintain independence, free from the stresses of day-to-day life. Every person has their own unique set of criteria when it comes to choosing a care home. Below, you will find a list of residential care homes in Alston; you can refine your search by selecting the specialisms and features that you need using the fields to the left of the page.

Each care home listed on TrustedCare is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England and Wales. The CQC conduct regular inspections of all care facilities to assess whether they meet regulated standards. You will find a link to a home’s most recent CQC report on their profile page, where you will also find other information, including details of specialisms and facilities, an overview of the home, a gallery and contact information. If a home is not a member of TrustedCare, you will be able to see basic information about that home so that you may still make an informed decision.

Understandably, the cost is a huge deciding factor when searching for care homes in Alston. The average cost of care in the Alston area is £870 per week but this greatly depends upon individual care providers. To find out if you are eligible for some funding support from your Local Authority, we recommend getting in touch with them to request a Financial Assessment. By clicking onto the profiles below, you can check the specialisms to see which care types the homes support such as respite care and dementia care. Often, we get asked what the difference between a residential care home and a nursing home is; care homes have Carers on hand 24 hours, whilst nursing homes also has a Registered Nurse on duty round the clock.

We know that finding a care home is tough, but we are confident that, together, we will find one that feels like home. To speak to a Care Advisor, email us, call, or click on the dialogue box at the bottom right of this screen.
