What is the Difference Between Residential and Day Care?

Whether you’re looking at our care homes in Staffordshire and Cheshire for yourself or a loved one, you’ll have most likely come across both residential care and adult day care. However, you may be wondering which is right for you. In order to help you understand which is the right type of care for your situation, we’ve put together the following guide.

What is Residential Care?

Across our care homes in Staffordshire and Cheshire, residential care helps those above the age of 65 with daily activities that they can no longer do themselves. For this reason, you will often hear residential care referred to as assisted living. Common tasks that our team can help you with include bathing, dressing, cooking, cleaning and taking medication. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you or your loved one have to completely move out either. In fact, you can decide how long you stay with us for, each time. However, if it is that you would find it easier to move into our homes permanently, you’re more than welcome.
