Life in a care home in Shropshire, what's it really like?


Work by Shropshire Healthwatch has helped to inform a new national report on peoples’ experience of care homes using Enter & View reports from the 20 homes visited in Shropshire in the last year.

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

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