A presentation and discussion of research on good care-giving in care homes for older people.
Many people experience care-giving in later years in the form of care home residence, either permanently or for temporary respite. Yet many media reports tend to focus upon instances of bad care, and the idea of moving into a care home can raise significant fears and worries both for the individual and their family members.
This event, organised under the umbrella of the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA), brought together some of the country’s leading researchers, from a wide range of research centres, for a unique discussion on care-giving in care homes for older people. It combined the presentation of social science research findings with discussion and personal reflections both of those with care needs and of those who provide care and who desire to deliver a good service. It provided an ideal space to debate what good care-giving might be, and how it might be delivered.
As part of the event, a short video was commissioned which highlights some of the research and reflections of attendees.
