My wife has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and I have to look for a care home for her. I live in New Malden and can drive for up to half an hour from home quite easily. Can anyone recommend any within that area?

Hi CasVid - I'm fairly sure no-one on this forum would be allowed (under usual forum rules) to to recommend any care homes - maybe in a private message? But what I would suggest is that you contact the Adult Services dept of your local authority - they will almost certainly have a list ( or brochure) of available care homes. You can then check that the home has a good report from the CQC ( Care Quality Commission) and is not under safeguarding or that there have been problems there.

Good luck with your search.

Hello CasVid and welcome to Talking Point.

Have mercy is right we cannot recommend care homes on the open forum but anyone who has a recommendation can private message you.

If your wife has a Social Worker or a Community psychiatric nurse they should also be able to give you details of homes in your area that would be suitable. It will depend on the level of care your wife needs as to which type of care home will be suitable and hopefully you have been advised of this to help you in your search.

Many thanks for your responses, I understand what you are saying, I should have thought of that myself!

My mother, who died recently, was in a very good specialist dementia home in New Malden for nearly 8 years. I am not allowed to name it here but will pm you.
