Defining excellence: excellence in domiciliary care

Social Care Institute for Excellence
Publication year:
Place of publication:

Service users get together with a social care academic and a leader in the home care sector to discuss how excellence can be achieved in domiciliary care.  We see examples of excellence in support offered to older people, people with learning disabilities and people with physical disabilities in their own homes.  Much of the focus is on the relationship between staff members and the people they support because getting that right is fundamental to excellent care. This film has now been revised and is available under the new title 'Quality in social care: achieving excellence in home care'.
