Recent events have created a climate of defiance towards care homes, partly due to the shortage of care workers in the institutions. However, residential care is still essential to support ageing people who are less autonomous, and solutions must be found to restore confidence.
What are the priority measures to implement to reconnect with patients and carers? Would involving the community in the life of care homes help to restore confidence, and in which ways? Would closer collaboration between care homes and hospitals bring improvements? What are the technological and training options for dealing with staff shortages? What can be drawn from examples of teaching/research in care homes?
