Respite/EMI homes

I would like to go on the Web to check on Respite/Specialist EMI homes run by my local authority. Does anyone know if there is a site where I can check reports from inspectors about these homes?. Ken my husband is due to go into a respite home for two weeks very shortly and I would love to be able to read any reports on this specific home if possible. Can anyone advise what I might type into the search engine?

On a lighter note, out shopping today with elderly mother and husband at Asda Supermarket. Mum searching the yoghurt shelves and muttering. I asked was she looking for a particular yoghurt and she answered " I'm looking for the Morrisons one as I like them best" - amused a passer by no end!

The Home should have a report available for you to look at. They are obliged to do that. They have one placed in the Reception area in the Home where my husband is a resident.

All the best
