Search for a care home

January 2018 showed a record number of individuals searching for care homes, with over a million of these being on care home review sites.

Davina Ludlow, chair of, said: “The UK has an ever-growing ageing population with people living longer with complex health conditions, so it is no surprise we have seen record traffic this January, showing there is a huge demand for care homes.”

Specialist care homes across the Exemplar Health Care group can be found on popular site; along with their latest reviews and review score. Dearnevale, in Barnsley, has just been presented with the Top 20 Care Home Award for Yorkshire and The Humber – all because of the brilliant reviews left on

Many families find it difficult to find a good care home which they and the individual in need of care are both happy with. Families and their social workers need answers to many questions during the decision making process – from the home’s location to the finding out more about staff, engagement and care plans – and what other people think of the home via reading reviews.

The Exemplar approach to assessment and referral often reduces re-admissions to acute settings, facilitates faster returns to lower-cost community living and brings an end to the cycle of failed placements.
