If you move into a care home
When you go into a care home, make sure the management and staff of the home know about your condition, disability and other needs. They may have some of this information already – for example, if the local authority has set up the placement after a care needs assessment. Moving home can be unsettling at the best of times, so when you move into a care home, it’s good to have it planned in advance and have family or friends around you when you move to make you feel more comfortable.
You should also contact the benefits office, if you have one (including disability benefits, as these can be affected by care home stays), make sure other services at your previous address have been notified and let friends and family know your know contact details and when you might feel up to receiving visitors
