“The new inspection and regulation regime for care homes will mean a major shake-up of the sector. It will also cast light on the efficacy or otherwise of private public partnerships, says Yasmin Alibhai-Brown.”
“The aim is not to cause chaos in the sector but to provide minimum standards below
which people cannot operate.”
Why should any care home owner find that so impossibly difficult? And what would that tell us about the levels of care in that home? I have long wondered about how it made any business sense to run care homes especially for older people.
This relatively short piece from TWENTY years ago is really worth a read. Ask what has inspection achieved in that time?
