Representing the best of independent elderly care


Know your rights when choosing a care home that's right for you...

  • You don't have to accept the first care option put to you by social services
  • Take a good look around and pick the one that makes you feel most comfortable

The Care Homes Association Of Tameside is here to help you with the care of your elderly relative. One of the most difficult dilemmas of modern life is what to do when, even with support, it's no longer possible for an elderly relative to look after themselves at home.

At such a sensitive and stressful time it can often be a tremendous burden to find out who can best offer the advice and facilities which you feel your parents or grandparents, aunts and uncles deserve. Many modern care homes also now offer all the necessary facilities to look after the most vulnerable of residents.

The choice is yours

It is your right to choose. There are over 40 care homes in the Tameside area. The Care Homes Association of Tameside represents many excellent care home operators who have dedicated themselves to providing the very best in care and accommodation.

Welcome advice

The advice of the Association, for anyone looking for care, whether it is long-term, 24- hour care in a residential or nursing home, respite care or any other form of short-term care, is to ensure that you have a good look around everything that is on offer and choose the home that best suits you or your loved one, rather than settle for the first option available.

  • If you are informed by anyone that you must go into a particular home because that is the only one that will get funding from social services, you are being misled
  • Do not accept this as it is not true. You are entitled by law to choose and be funded in the home of your choice

Your Moral & Legal Rights

You are entitled to your own choice whether you require:

  • Long-term care in a residential or nursing home
  • Respite care
  • Short-term convalescence
  • Re-enablement where you just need to be equipped with the skills to return home
  • Recuperation

Choice Reduction

Tameside Council has a contract with Meridian Healthcare (formerly TEL) and the council has a policy which states that anyone who doesn't exercise their right to choose will be sent to a Meridian Home. However, always remember you have a choice. If a Meridian Care Home is the home of your choice, this is fine. However, everyone has the basic human right of choice by law and if you do not want to reside in a Merdian Home, you do not have to.

You can demand the right to have your care afforded to you or your loved one in the care home you choose.
