The long-term care scheme can help you with the cost of care if you choose to stay in your own home or if you're living in a care home.
It's important that you find the right care provider for you. Choose one that you can afford and that is able to deal with your specific care needs.
Below you can find a list of care providers for both home and residential care.
Care providers must be registered, or be exempt for registration, under the
Regulation of Care (Jersey) Law 2014 and approved under the
Long-Term Care (Jersey) Law 2012.
Not all providers listed may be approved so check with us before agreeing to any contract with a care provider.
