Nursing in Care Homes

There has been a lot of concern lately about the standards of care and welfare of older people in care homes, in the hospital and also in their own homes. There have been calls from the Department of Health, the Healthcare Commission and the Home Affairs Committee to promote respect and dignity and for higher levels of care for the elderly. Comic Relief have published disturbing figures on the neglect and ill-treatment of older people not only by carers but also their relatives! Figures show that people sufferring from dementia are at the highest risk of neglect.
