About us

Our mission and ethos

Founded in 2000, BETTERCARING is the longest-standing residential and nursing care home internet search site 100% focused on the needs of those looking for residential care and for those who are providing these services.


BETTERCARING has been consistently ranked as one of the leading care home directories.


From searching for the right type of care for yourself or a family member to making sure your care home is visible to those searching, we aim to provide this information in an impartial way.




BETTERCARING offers a searchable database of all residential and nursing homes in the UK. You can search by location or type of home you need.


Care issues affect everyone at some stage in their lives. As the years go by we may all find ourselves unable to cope and in need of assistance. Accessing long term care and support, at home or in a residential setting, can place tremendous pressure on you, your family and your friends.

BETTERCARING is the website to help you find the right home for you and your family.

Above all, at BETTERCARING we aim to help you prepare for the future so you are properly informed and better able to decisions that are right for you when the need arises.
