What type of care home do I need?

We understand that it can be a little overwhelming finding the right care home for your loved one, which is why we’re here to help.

Whatever care home you need, we’re here to help

Whether you’re looking for temporary or long term care, nursing or residential care, or for a loved one living with dementia, we have care homes to suit all. With a focus on personalised care and support in a warm, friendly environment, we want our residents to feel right at home

Bupa Buddy

We’ve created Bupa Buddy, a service to make sure every elderly person has someone to chat to − about anything at all.

This service is open to all elderly people, not just our care home residents. They don’t even have to be a Bupa customer.

Residential care

Our residential care homes are ideal for those who are finding it harder to cope at home without assistance. We take care of all the cooking, cleaning and personal care so our residents can relax in a safe and secure environment.

Dedicated nursing care

If a health condition needs more nursing care, our care homes can provide around-the-clock support. Residents will have the benefits and assistance they’d get from living in a residential care home, with additional nursing care when needed.

Dementia care

We provide two types of dementia care: Residential dementia care and nursing dementia care. Residential dementia care provides 24-hour personalised care and assistance in a safe and comfortable environment. Nursing dementia care is for residents who need care and support from qualified nursing staff.

Respite and short stays

Everyone is welcome to join us for a temporary stay, whether it’s to provide respite for a carer or family member, staying for day care, or to experience what it’s like living in one of our care homes before moving in long-term.

Post operation and illness recovery

We also provide short term care in our care homes, designed for those recovering from an operation or hospital stay. This is often referred to as convalescent care.

Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis

Some of our care homes provide care for long-term neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and multiple sclerosis, tailored to the resident’s individual needs.

Physical disabilities and neurological conditions

Many of our homes provide care for residents over the age of 18 with neurological conditions, including acquired brain injuries, physical disabilities and learning difficulties. If you are looking for a home for a resident who is young and physically disabled we have homes to cater for your needs.

Palliative care

Our care homes offer end of life care - which also includes palliative care – so we can provide respectful and proactive care for residents in their last days of life, making sure their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are considered and met.

Privately-owned retirement housing

Richmond Villages, part of Bupa, offer a number of luxury retirement villages throughout the country that offer residents retirement living with the reassurance of help if it’s needed.

Care home costs

We can help you work out the likely cost of care and how you might pay for it. For example, you could get financial help from your local authority, or you might consider a care annuity (ensuring a regular income towards your care costs), or a type of equity release called a lifetime mortgage. We can also discuss whether you need specialist care, perhaps for dementia, palliative or respite care, as this can be more costly.

Figuring out how to pay for care can be a worry, so we’re here to help. Check out our page all about it, give us a call, or download our free guides.
