Hunting a residential care home for my 76yo father - any recommendations, please?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm in urgent need of a residential care home for my father who has been in hospital for nearly a month. He was living with us before. Does anyone have any recommendations, please? Thank you.

The Elms in Barry Road has a consistent good reputation. Residential and like most homes- expensive. If your father qualifies for financial assistance from Social Services- they will not be able to meet the full fees so you will need to do a 3rd party contribution of a few hundred pounds. Age UK have good leaflets re care home funding as this is quite a complicated issue.

Greenhithe in Brayards Road Peckham also has a good reputation . Run by Anchor Care Homes?

Rose Court in Rotherhithe.

Most care homes have a waiting list.  Has your father been assessed by the Hospital Discharge Team Social Worker? The assessment will advise whether he needs a residential or nursing home. Also will undertake a financial assessment of his income and savings.

The Elms is under new ownership. It has had mixed reviews. Not sure how it is now. 
I was looking into finding a Care Home a year ago. Visited Manley Court Care Home. A Bupa home on the site of the old Millwall football ground. Was impressed with the home & staff.

Peartree Care Home on Sydenham Road always gets good reviews.

Not heard about new ownership of Elms  it is a Methodist home. Had new Care Manager in last few months, most of the old staff seem to ne there.

 

Manley Court has a variable history - depending on Managers and staffing.

The Elms was South East London Baptist. Is now a Mission Care home.

    • That is horrific.  I can't even believe that this a thing.  Really what planet do these so called humans live on...    It actually says that the little fluff balls will be gassed.    It should be illegal.  At least one person took the time to read the letter.   I am shocked.
    • Looking for some advice here! Our little one is sleeping, finally, but still gets upset when going to bed or waking up. Has anyone tried one of the star/galaxy projectors you can get for them at night, and does it distract and sooth them enough to send them to sleep? Recommendations are very welcome here, as there are many different options online, from the suspiciously cheap to eye wateringly expensive. Is it a case of you get what you pay for? Advice gratefully received! LL
    • Wouldn't it be better to have a stall at North Cross Road market with a board explaining what they do rather than obstructing the pavement by "explaining" to people what they do one by one?
    • PETA are on to it,  makes horrendous reading, thanks for bringing it to our attention.💔
