Care Guide

Use our Care Guide to find information about how to live well at home, care and support services and care homes.

You can view the Care Guide online as an interactive eBook and browse through it electronically.

Following a delay in publication of the 2020/21 edition of the Care Guide due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an updated online version is now available. It includes new up-to-date editorial, with advice on improving your health and wellbeing and information to support you to live independently. It also includes current rates and charges.

We will be publishing printed copies of the Care Guide in April/May 2021.

Please note: the Care Guide cannot be viewed using Internet Explorer – please use alternative browsers such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
