Support our campaign calling on the Government to make care home owners and providers accountable for the care they provide
The Relatives & Residents Association is calling for the better regulation of care homes. New regulations are urgently needed to make providers fully accountable for the health, safety and dignity of their residents.
The R&RA is calling for the reinstatement of regulations requiring that providers:
- inspect their care homes monthly to check the standard of care provided;
- report their findings to the regulator, the manager of the home and company directors;
- ensure quality of care is improved when care is of a poor standard.
Good quality care means that there must be a trained and qualified manager in post at all times. We want robust regulations that ensure the regulator, the Care Quality Commission, has the power to:
- impose serious penalties for carrying on a care home without a registered manager.
