    Good Care Guide

    Just read in a womans magazine about a new website: www.goodcareguide.co.uk which offers a database of some 60,000 care providers,including homes and home care agencies. You can give ratings too.

    Checked the agency I use for my mother and it also contained the latest CQC Report - all fine which is nice to know!

    May help anyone looking for more information.

    Thanks SWMBO1950, we must read the same magazine. I hope this will soon be extended to cover Wales as mum is in a care home in Cardiff.

    Seems like it's in it's early stages (checked a few I know and no reviews on any of them yet) but it could become very useful,though any negative comments could very easily be taken off so would advice it's only used as a backup tool

    Always do your own checks

    I checked local to me and nothing rated yet but At least it provides a better and more comprehensive lst than the booklet I was given by the CPN so that is useful

    Thanks for this. It is on my "to do" list to visit care homes in my mum's area so that we can start to plan for the future. This will be an excellent starting point and, as other have mentioned, better again once the reviews start to get posted.

    Thank you for this information. My Mum's care home is listed and I have just been able to read the recent inspection report and compliance doc.

    Anything that helps people when they are distressed and having to make a choice of care home is a good thing!
