Review

“….This report is a starting point for a movement among all those who believe that people’s value and individuality should not diminish as they reach the end of their lives.The vision is about ensuring that people’s higher human needs for enrichment, fulfilment and recognition are met in care homes. It is giving opportunities for carehome  residents to have lives which have meaning and purpose, if they wish, or simply to have peace of mind.This is the antithesis of the kind of care which is so often provided without regard to individuals’ needs, wants, tastes and preferences.

 

Equally, it is important to recognise and value those that work closest with older people. Help the Aged believes that the only way to realise the vision is through positive action, involvement, partnership and seeing care homes as being a positive choice for many older people.

Critical to this is our explicit belief, which we discuss in some detail, that the care home needs to become a community of those who live there, those who work in it and those who have relatives who are residents….”
