A Cluster to look at common issues facing Residential and Care home members. The Royal British Legion is the lead for this Cluster.
Membership of the Cluster is by invitation of the Cluster lead, who is appointed by the Cobseo Executive Committee. Those organizations who are members of Cobseo will be invited as Cluster full members. All others will be Cluster associate members (not to be confused with Cobseo associated members).
There is a guide available for care home managers and staff, produced by Demos in partnership with Cobseo and the Forces in Mind Trust, to help support military veterans of all ages who may be living in residential or nursing care, or on a respite stay. It is written in partnership with a group of care homes who specialise in providing residential care for veterans of different ages. Click here to download.
Here is a link to a directory which lists the care services available specifically for the ex-Service community. This includes residential nursing and dementia homes, as well as short break and respite care. It will be updated as necessary.
Potential users of these services should contact providers directly for up to date details on eligibility, availability and costs.
