Whilst care homes are improving the information they give to prospective residents, advertised fees for places in the same care home can vary hugely, sometimes from £650 to £1,500 a week, without a clear explanation of why some people pay more than others and what their money will buy. The report also showed that sometimes people paying for their own care can subsidise those people paid for by the local council, where councils negotiate lower rates. In areas without enough care services to meet demand, even those people moving into care homes who are funded by the council can be asked to pay ‘top-up’ fees to cover higher charges – as many as 75% of homes in some areas required a ‘top-up’.

This report published by the Commission for Social Care Inspection summarises evidence about the current performance of home care in England, and draws conclusions about the overall state of this sector and its capacity to expand and develop. Although home care services support a range of people of all ages, the report focuses on older people, as they are the largest group of people using the service. In doing so, it looks at the roles of different players in the home care market, including the people who use services, local authority commissioners and registered service providers.

CSCI has published a new bulletin which aims to address the needs of black and minority ethnic people using care services. The bulletin calls for black and minority ethnic people to have their cultural and social needs addressed on a more personal level. This will help to ensure that their specific needs are adequately considered during assessments by care homes and providers. The bulletin is aimed at care providers – people who run care homes - to help them address the new government agenda, Putting People First.

Rights, risks and restraints: an exploration into the use of restraint in the care of older people

Author:

Place of publication:
London

The report says that clear guidelines and well-resourced services are needed to ensure dignity of care for people who use services. It looks at the issues and dilemmas around restraint, particularly the tensions between respecting people’s rights to freedom and to make choices, while at the same time ensuring people’s safety. Although there is policy and legislation to respect people’s human rights, the report suggests that in practice care workers have been left largely unsupported to deal with these tensions.

This report looks at the experiences of older people and carers who need care providers to help them adjust to the life changes associated with ageing - not just to arrange care services. Social care agencies need to engage with older people about what they want, and work alongside them to enable them to choose the best possible lifestyle for them.
