Not every care home feels like home. With few protections in place against people being put into poor care homes - and scarce information available - choosing one can be the most challenging decision older people and their families will ever face. Join our Better Choices, Better Care campaign today and help us to secure the best choice and care for every older person who needs it - both now and in the future.
We’ve been working on a project with Healthwatch in Camden – who help local people have their say on health and care services – to develop some indicators which help people better understand what each care home in their area is like. This could help people make better choices.
We’d like other Healthwatch organisations in England to do the same thing. Could you help us spread the word by sending a message to your MP?
We want to ask them to work with their local Healthwatch to improve the information that people have about care homes in their area. All you need to do is enter your details to send an email directly to your MP.
