So often we hear bad news about care homes. Abuse is normally the headlines. But so often there are good stories.
Many residents come to live in a care home and have a great experiences. You don’t hear about the stories where it improves the residents life, where they become stronger and more at ease with themselves. Care Homes need to shout about the good things they do, the good outcomes for our residents which we deliver every day. So why should we shout about something which we are doing day in day out? Why? Because we need to let people see the other side of care homes. The side which doesn’t get on to Panorama or the national Press.
