The Care Standards Act 200 replaces the Registered Homes Act 1984.

This comparative guide sets out the new requirements under the Care Standards Act Parts I and II alongside the previous requirements of the Registered Homes Act with a clear explanation of the changes. Note is made where there was no previous equivalent, or where previous requirements have been removed. Some requirements under both the previous and the new regime are set out in regulations but this guide focuses on the Acts.

Very sheltered housing, extracare, assisted living, supported housing - all are names for a form of provision that has been touted as the future of care for older people in this country. So how does it measure up with the older people who live there? Counsel and Care spoke to 50 tenants of four very different schemes in a representative county. The report is designed as a reference work that can be easily dipped into, giving instant access to the research findings alongside all the relevant standards and regulations, issue-by-issue. Standards covered by the report include the National Service Framework for older people, the National Minimum Standards for Domiciliary Care, the Supporting People Quality Assessment Framework, the Housing Corporation Inspection framework and the Centre for Sheltered Housing Studies Code of Practice.

Place of publication:

This statement and development pathway sets out the knowledge, skills and values that social workers need to work with older people. It sets out the enhanced capabilities for five different levels of a social work career, showing how these capabilities develop and deepen through experience and ongoing professional development. The five levels cover: capabilities at qualification; at the end of the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment; social worker and experienced social worker; advanced level; and at strategic level. The capabilities cover: professionalism; contexts and organisations; leadership; values and ethics; diversity; rights and justice; knowledge; critical reflection; and intervention and skills. The capabilities are not mandatory and act as guidance to improve social work development and they reflect what the evidence suggests will promote older people’s well-being. The statement has been developed by the social work profession, in partnership with older people, carers and diverse partner organisations and has been endorsed by the Department of Health.

Edition:
Rev ed.

The National Care Standards Committee was set up by the Scottish Government to develop national standards in collaboration with a number of working groups including service users and service providers. They are designed to be from the point of view of service users to help them to understand what they can expect from the service provider. They may also be of use to service providers to help them know what is expected of them. The standards in this publication cover care homes for older people. These services offer 24-hour care, 7 days a week, to older people. They provide accommodation together with nursing care, personal care and support. Older people may choose to stay in a care home permanently, or for regular planned short breaks. Staff should be able to cater for individual’s changing needs so they should not have to move if they become ill. The standards are grouped under 4 headings: before moving in; settling in; day-to-day life; and moving on.

This document sets out National Minimum Standards for Care Homes for Older People issued by the Welsh Assembly Government under section 23 of the Care Standards Act 2000 (CSA). These standards will be used by the Assembly’s Care Standards Inspectorate for Wales (CSIW) when determining whether these care homes are providing adequate care, meeting the needs of the persons who live there and otherwise being carried on in accordance with regulatory requirements. The Welsh Assembly Government will keep the standards under review, and may publish amended standards as appropriate.
