Care homes can reduce the stress of looking after your health and care. This may help you focus on other things, like your social life and general wellbeing.​

​Across South East London there are 256 care homes, of which 103 (40%) are primarily used for older people. The majority of older peoples’ care homes are based in Bromley (36%), which is also the borough that has the highest rate of care homes per one hundred thousand older people, followed by Lewisham.
