Finding the right care home can take some time. If you have specific or complex care needs it can sometimes be difficult. Charities and organisations related to your specific disability might be able to offer advice about choosing a home.

Easy2name note that the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) inspects all registered homes and produce reports on what they find. Reading the reports on the homes you are considering might help you make a choice.

Minimum standards issued by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety state that care homes should offer trial stays.  If possible, you should visit residential care or nursing homes that you are considering, to make sure they meet your current and possible future needs.

You may have a checklist with you of points that are important to you in case you forget to ask something, which may include:

  • Is it accessible?
  • Is it safe?
  • Is there adequate room for my belongings?
  • Is appropriate equipment available – for example handrails, hoists, adjustable baths and armchairs?
  • Can I have my family and friends to visit/stay?
  • Can you keep your own doctor?
  • Can your food, hygiene and dietary needs be met?
  • Can your religious or cultural needs be met?

Easy2name can help you to make sure that when you move into your selected care home, that your belongings are safe. With our diverse range of labels and tags, which are easy and quick to use, everything that you take with you into the home can be labelled. You will be safe in the knowledge that whether the item needs washing or not, the labels and tags will remain in place.

And while that is a minor inconvenience for most children, for a child with severe food allergies it can be life threatening.
What steps can parents take to further reduce the risk of severe allergic reaction to food during the school day? There are a number of ways in fact to help ensure your child avoids unknown foods as well as ways to help educate your child to understand why they need to be careful.
