Safeguarding vulnerable adults in care home settings
When adults become unwell, whether that be because of mental health or physical issues, this can make them more vulnerable to neglect or abuse. The safety and well-being of the those living in care home settings is important. Residents will often rely on their family and friends to raise concerns, as they become less able or less inclined to question the level and suitability of care being provided.
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. It provides free, independent reports on the quality of your local homes and care services to help you make an informed choice. It also provides advice on What you can expect from a good care home. We recommend you view the most recent inspection report and quality rating before contacting a care home.
