Care Homes closed their doors to visitors to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading to residents and staff. Residents and their relatives and friends were suddenly disconnected and unable to see each other.
We are motivated to work with our care home community and health and care system to better understand the impact this had and what support is needed going forward. We start this with shining a spotlight on some of the good practice we found.
This short document outlines some of the things our volunteers observed and found.
