    Does anyone have any recommnedations for care homes in Gloucestershire? We are not quite there yet with my 90 year old dad who I think is probably about stage 4 A/D but I am trying to get all the info I can together for all eventualities. It's my 83 year old mum I am really worried about trying to cope.

    They live in the Forest of Dean currently. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Your local Social Services should have a leaflet/brochure listing all the care homes in your region It may well be worth calling in to them. In our county they were listed into residential/specialist care/nursing and until the time comes you will not be too sure what your Father's needs will require. It is always worth calling in to get a 'feel' of any prospective home. I personally advise calling unannounced so that you get the true picture. The home my husband went to did not object to me calling and I always felt the atmosphere was warm and friendly.

    Also just to let you know that members are not allowed to mention Care Homes on the forum but they can send you a private message.

    Thanks so much for this - I shoud have realised but didn't. Could I ask whether I should post my personal email for any private replies? Not sure about the best way to facilitate that? Very best wishes
