Making the decision to move yourself or a loved one into a care home can be difficult.

Understandably you will have lots of questions and will want to find out as much as you can about the facilities, local amenities and, most importantly, the types of care available, before you make any decisions.

To show you what life in our care homes is really like, we have put together a selection of stories from our residents, relatives and teams across Sanctuary Care.

If you have any further questions about Sanctuary Care or would like to talk to us about what you or your loved one needs, please feel free to contact us.
