Top three factors for good homecare in UK

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

A survey of care workers, homecare providers, council workers, service users and their families carried out jointly by The Guardian newspaper and the UK Department of Health identified the top three factors for providing good homecare. These were ìsufficient time for care, friendly, respectful, capable care workers and choice about services.î

The survey also threw up some ideas for making homecare even better and were discussed in a recent on-line web chat involving Norman Lamb, UK Government Minister for Care and Support along with representatives from the Third Sector, local authorities and homecare providers.
