Residential accommodation - Surrey Partnership Boards

Residential Care is full-time, often long-term care given to an individual in a registered setting rather than an individual’s own home. Residential care homes provide accommodation and personal care for people throughout each day. These services need to be registered with the Care Quality Commission.

Nursing Care is the same as residential care but is also able to respond to an individual’s specialist health needs that need to be performed by a trained nurse.
