Commentary and other materials posted on our site are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.

Scope of our services and sources of information on our site

The purpose of our site is to give you information about care services available to you. There are three categories of care operators: care homes, domiciliary care and extra care. Extra care covers a range of services from accommodation with a concierge, to sheltered accommodation with or without additional facilities such as recreational rooms and/or staff providing various services.

Care homes and domiciliary care services are independently regulated and assessed by official bodies: the Care and Quality Commission (CQC) for England and the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). Extra care is not independently regulated or assessed (except in Scotland), although may adhere to relevant codes of conduct.

The information on care operators is obtained from publicly available reports from the independent regulators – CQC and CIW. Any descriptions of care services and any photographs or images of care facilities have been provided by the care operators themselves. We do not edit what has been submitted to us by care operators save if necessary, to fit photographs or images to our standard photograph or image size or text to our maximum word count. Where we note that there is, or may be, an obvious error we may correct this to the best of our knowledge within our absolute discretion. Where reasonably possible we will refer back to the care operator which submitted the item.

Where we refer regulators to reports or assessments about care operators, we are referring to the independent reports from the independent regulators – CQC and CIW.
We also carry out our own inspections or assessments if separately commissioned on a private basis. Where the commissioning provider has agreed we display that assessment under the heading My Care My Home Rating.

Where we provide a facility on our site for any comments or reviews of care operators or facilities this is intended for use by users or prospective users of those operators or facilities, their family and friends or other interested parties to provide objective statements which may be of assistance to others. Such posts are to be in accordance with our acceptable use policy.

When you purchase a Premium Listing you consent to My Care My Home removing the listing from it’s website if the registration is cancelled by the regulator. If this occurs no refund will be given.

You consent to the publication of and agree to My Care My Home publishing feedback and assessments and reviews, which may be critical or defamatory of you, even though My Care My Home may be aware that such feedback or assessments or reviews caused or contributed to the publication of a statement is defamatory to you.

Any editing is within our absolute discretion, but wherever reasonably practicable we will agree the changes with the operator or before or as soon as possible after posting on our site.

As regards any photograph, image, text or other content provided by an operator for posting on our site, the operator warrants that it is accurate and that we may use it as supplied or with such editing as we in our absolute discretion deem appropriate.

Where users post any comment or review on our site about a care operator or the service or facility which it operates, we shall allow the operator a right of response up to 250 words provided always that such response complies with the acceptable use policy generally and this specific policy for care operators as may be amended from time to time as stated in our terms of use. Where we note any user post which seems to us to be exceptionally adversely critical of an operator we may alert that operator in case they wish to respond, although we do not undertake and we are not under any obligation to do so.

Users

Users of our site are invited to post comments and reviews of operators and the services or facilities they provide. Such posts should not exceed 250 words. Our policy is to publish such posts without editing, except if the maximum length is exceeded. In such cases we reserve the right to edit it down to our maximum word count whilst retaining what in our view is the sense and sentiment of the review. In all other respects the posts should comply with our acceptable use policy and terms of use.
