Heléna Herklots, the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales, has published a new guide for older people and their families that provides answers to frequently asked questions about moving into and living in care homes.
The guide is seeking to help to ensure older people have a better understanding of their rights when living in a care home, and contains information on a wide range of topics including finding a suitable care home, paying for care, having a say in decisions, activities and socialising, and what someone can do if they are unhappy with the care and support they are receiving.
Ed. Hopefully this will dispel any concerns that people have.
