What’s it like to live in a care home?

Between January 2016 and April 2017, local Healthwatch staff and volunteers across England visited 197 care homes across 63 different local authority areas to find out what day to day life is really like for many of those living in care homes.

The ‘What’s it like to live in a care home?’ report outlines key next steps for care homes in how feedback can be used to identify a whole host of small, low cost changes that ensure all residents feel ‘at home’.
