There is a new online resource aims to make it easier for people to find good care homes in their local area. The Quality Care Commission (CQC), the independent regulator of health and social care in England, has produced a map of inspection ratings for care homes.
The good news is that nearly two thirds (64 per cent) of all active care homes rated so far have been judged by CQC as providing ‘good’ standards of care.
The map is very easy to use and each care home marked on the map has an accompanying rating and report.
You can search by postcode to find services near you.
