How are activities provided in care homes?
'My Way, Every Day'
Healthwatch Surrey have published a report looking at how care homes in Surrey provide activities for care home residents, which you can download below.
Volunteers visited 25 care homes to speak to residents about what it is like to live in care home, how often their individual wishes and needs are taken into account on a daily basis.
While there was evidence of a rich mix of experiences and activities which were valued by residents, these were not available to everyone. As a result of what we have found, Healthwatch Surrey has identified a number of specific recommendations for Surrey County Council, care home providers, the Care Quality Commission and the organisation responsible for developing national standards for the adult social care sector, Skills for Care.
