In April 2023, the Department of Health and Social Care published their policy paper ‘Next Steps to put People at the Heart of Care’ which details plans to reform adult social care throughout the country. The paper includes measures to support care workers in their career and drive improvements in adult social care provision. In order to support residents and employees of care homes, robust partnerships across NHS trusts and social care providers must be formed so that practitioners can support residents of care homes more effectively. Through sharing and engaging with best practice across the sector, practitioners can work to effectively support elderly residents and their families.

  • In 2022 there were nearly half a million people living in care homes in the UK
  • About 70% of all care home residents have dementia or severe memory problems
  • The UK care home work-force totals over 750,000 people
