Description:
1.1 About the Ten Steps - Healthy Ageing Initiative in Residential Care The National Council on Ageing and Older People (NCAOP) has long recognised the particular needs of residents in long-term residential care settings (NCAOP, 2000; Murphy et al., 2006) and has been concerned with the quality of long-term residential care provided for older people in Ireland. In this context, the NCAOP identified residential care as a key setting in relation to its Healthy Ageing Programme. The Irish Health Promoting Hospitals Network (IHPHN) has also identified long-term residential care as a key focus within its work programme given the growing number of residential care facilities for older people included in its membership. In 2003, the NCAOP and the IHPHN undertook to explore in partnership the development of a Healthy Ageing Initiative in Residential Care (HAIRC). This report summarises the research findings generated from the evaluation of HAIRC and presents recommendations based on the analysis of these findings. The background documentation, including a report on the process review and the qualitative research strands of the evaluation of the Initiative, is also available on request.
