Resources for care homes and families of people living in residential care
Going into care is a major change for older people and their families, and people living in residential care homes are increasingly recognised as being at high risk of loneliness. Families often find it difficult to know how what to talk about or how to get the best out of their visits. Together by Enrichment for the Elderly worked with people living in four care homes in Sheffield, their families and care home staff to help improve the social contact between families and their relatives living in care homes. Enrichment for the Elderly has worked with older people, their families and care homes to produce resources which will be used in care homes and have helpful pointers for others to learn from.
