Residential homes provide full board and personal care. They are run by Adult Care Services, voluntary groups, private individuals and companies. Some provide short-term care to allow carers a break. All homes whether council-run or private must be registered and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
Bury Adult Care Services have several residential care homes for older people one of which are solely for periods of respite care and rehabilitation. Some of the homes have a particular interest in caring for older people with mental frailty. Click on the related pages on the right for further information on our Short Term Residential care.
Nursing care homes
The difference between a residential care home and a nursing home is that in addition to a residential home, a nursing home provides care needing the constant involvement of or supervision by a qualified nurse. The nursing home is staffed 24 hours per day with qualified nursing staff.
As with residential homes, some nursing homes are run by voluntary organisations or charities, though most are privately run by individuals or companies.
