Understanding Care Homes: A Research and Development Perspective



Improving the quality of life for older
adults living in long term care settings is recognised as an
increasingly important issue.Understanding Care Homes draws together a
range of research and development initiatives that emphasise the
importance of partnership working, and of enabling older people and
their families to maintain the highest quality of life. The book is
divided into three sections, each investigating how research and
development can be undertaken to provide better care for the individual
resident and their family, to enhance care at the organisational level
and to develop the care home’s relationships within the wider community.
By addressing the concerns of residents and their families as well as
those of carers and home managers, this book identifies how the
generation of new knowledge through research can bring about real
changes in care provision.This collection of papers will be an
invaluable resource for students, care staff, care home managers,
inspectors, lecturers and policy makers.
