Enhanced health and wellbeing in care homes: doing things differently

This content relates to the following topics:

Described as ‘islands of the old’, independent care homes often find themselves isolated from the communities they serve, while caring for large numbers of some of the oldest and most frail citizens in our society. While reliant on the NHS and local authorities to support the health and wellbeing of their residents, it is not widely understood how best these organisations can work together. 

On 19 September, The King’s Fund explored innovative new ways to improve services and the health and wellbeing of residents in care homes and other forms of housing with care. We heard from a line-up of policy and grass-root experts, from both the NHS and care homes, and provided an opportunity for attendees to share learning with other delegates from across the UK.
