Older people’s vision for long term care

Helen Bowers et al.  18th Nov 2009

This study examined the experiences and
aspirations of these older people and highlights their ambition to
increasingly influence decisions about care, support and wider issues
such as:

  • Whether or not to move to a care home
  • What helps to enhance their quality of life
  • What is needed to promote their inclusion in care home, family and wider community life.
