What Standards should I expect?

The CSSIW regulates health and social services in Wales. Under existing rules all health and social care providers must be registered with them. Such registration reassures the public when they enter a care facility and also enables the CSSIW to check that the Home is continuing to meet the standards, which set out the quality of care, and facilities that you should expect from a care provider.

You can check the most recent inspection report on the CSSIW web site to see how well we are doing and if there is anything of concern.

You can view The National Minimum Standards for care homes on the CSSIW Website.

What should I look for when choosing a Home?

A good care home will probably do the following:

  • Offer new residents and their families or carers a guide (in a variety of accessible formats) that describes what they can expect while they’re living there.
