Description:
I am very pleased to be associated with the publication of this report - 'Home from Home? The Views of Residents on Social Gain and Quality of Life: A Study in Three Care Centres for Older People.' I support the approach taken as the basis for the research, which is to interview residents of continuing care settings about how they perceive their own quality of life or 'social gain' within the care centre. I believe that this consultative approach should be at the heart of any attempt to improve standards in care services into the 21 st century.
