Care minister hints at residential home filip in social care green paper

Minister for care Caroline Dinenage has hinted that residential care will benefit in the adult social care green paper due for publication in July.

Speaking to Care Home Management magazine at last week’s Alzheimer’s Society annual conference, she said: “Transformation is something we want to achieve across the board. One size fits all won’t cut it. Person-centred care is the best way to help people maintain a good quality of life – at home or in residential care.”

She told the conference audience that high quality care depends on a skilled and committed workforce. Staff education, training and development “was all part of a wider workforce strategy to attract and retain people” she said.

But, she also admitted that the government had work to do to achieve the ambition for the UK to be the best place in the world to live with dementia by 2020. “I am passionate about the need to transform the lives of everyone affected by a dementia diagnosis,” she said.
