Help and Guidance

We know that finding out about the right care and housing services you need can be daunting.

This guidance is designed to help answer your questions and to provide relevant information.

I pay for my rent myself - how do I apply for your housing?

In the first instance contact Bristol City Council’s HomeChoice team whose details are published on

We need a carer at home - do you provide them and how do we apply?

Brunelcare provides home care and support services in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Somerset. Please view our Home care pages for full details.

What is respite care?

We define this in two ways. You might care for someone 24/7 and need respite or are you simply looking for somewhere that offers specialist, short-term respite care for someone with nursing or dementia care needs. Take a look at our 'Respite care' page for more information.

Will I have to fund my care home place?

This depends on your care needs and individual circumstances. If you know you will be self-funding your place, please contact one of Brunelcare's Care Home Managers directly. If unsure, please contact your local council for a care assessment in the first instance.
