Wales pledges summer of care home support

The Welsh Government has pledged to use the summer to review the general and clinical support provided to its care homes to identify areas of best practice and lessons learned ahead of winter.

The review will take place between July and September and will also look at the specific costs care home businesses have incurred together with the measures and actions that were effective in alleviating financial pressure.

Care homes that required contingency support during COVID to avoid business failure will receive special support.

The package is set out in the final update of Wales’ Our Care Homes Action Plan, which was first published in July last year, and which follows the care home recovery plan unveiled earlier this week.

Six areas are highlighted for specific review:  

  1. Infection prevention and control
  2. Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  3. General and clinical support for care homes
  4. Residents’ well-being
  5. Social care workers’ well-being
  6. Financial sustainability
