The Community Opportunity

This research, The Community Opportunity, shows that community organisations providing adult social care:

  • Provide more personalised, dignified care: they recognise the needs and harness the strengths of the people they care for and make this the basis of their approach. Avoiding dehumanising practices such as time and task.
  • Relieve pressure on the NHS and over-stretched public services: High-quality care allows for early intervention and prevention work, reducing the burden on the NHS and often keeping people in their homes and communities longer.
  • Strengthen the local economy by employing and retaining local care staff.

The Residential Forum takes the view that care homes are community organisations…they are part of the community and not apart from it.
