My Mum, a confirmed smoker, spent the last 2 years of her life in a care home. Residents had designated smoking rooms, with efficient extractors, and could smoke in the courtyard gardens when the weather was good. Staff would help non-mobile residents to get there. This was only 18 months ago, so there are care homes with facilities for smokers.
It wasn't something we set out to look for, but realised with hindsight that Mum wouldn't have consented to be somewhere she couldn't smoke. She said it was her only remaining pleasure. Like others, we didn't have a good experience with home carers.
