Residential Care can help adults or older people with a disability or learning difficulties.

If you need residential care, there are a choice of care homes in the area. Private homes provide care on behalf of the council under a contract.

In Fife the Council has ten care homes as well as charity operated and private homes. Respite care is available to give carers a break and many homes offer short breaks for cared for people.

A care home offers an alternative home for people who are no longer safe in their own home.

Our care homes in Fife, run by the local authority, operate on a 24 hour staffed basis. The homes provide meals, activities and help with personal care and daily living.

The Regulation of Care is a function carried out by the Scottish Commission. In Fife, we register and inspect Care homes in this way. By doing this we maintain high standards at all times.

There is a printed directory of all care homes in Fife or available from your local Social Work Office.
