Council Launches Online Care Homes Directory

A new web-based service to help people to find nursing or residential care is now available in Cheshire. Cheshire County Council’s online Care Homes Directory enables people to access all the information they require at the click of a mouse. Users can search through a comprehensive database of all care homes in the Cheshire local authority area to find the one which best meets their requirements.

By carrying out searches based on location and type of care required, users can view a shortlist and click on the premises name to see the full details of that particular home.

The directory can be found at

Adult Social Services Executive Member Lynn Hardwick said: “The new online directory is intended to assist the people of Cheshire, their families or carers who are making the decision of moving into a care home.

“It is very user-friendly facility, and because it is an online resource it will be more up to date than a printed directory.”
