Residential care home workforce development: the rhetoric and reality of meeting older residents’ future care needs – Joseph Rowntree Foundation – 24 May 2010

“This study examines the best way of meeting the future needs of older care home residents. Exploring evidence from an in-depth study of three residential homes, it confirms that training care staff in basic clinical skills can enhance health and social care provision for older people in residential homes. It found that this approach could boost older people’s quality of life by making them more comfortable, increasing their well-being, and reducing the chance of them being unsettled by a move to a nursing home. The report also concludes that residential homes will not be able to provide this choice unless there is financial support for new role carers and their training.”
