National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland

Creator:

Health Information and Quality Authority

Type: Report
Region: Northern Ireland
Description:

It is widely recognised that Ireland is at a cross roads in the way we, as a society, care for our older people. In times past, the extended family meant that as people grew older they remained in the family home cared for by their relatives. This is no longer the norm, with more and more people moving into residential care settings as they grow older. This raises challenges in terms of how we protect the rights of older people who live in residential care settings and ensure that they are able to lead as full lives as possible in a caring, respectful environment.
