Care Briefings

Funded by Comic Relief and developed in partnership with Action on Elder Abuse (AEA), two sets of Care Briefings were published in 2008. Their success led to R&RA’s Keys to Care and Keynotes. All share the central message that there are many relatively simple aspects of care that can make all the difference to the daily lives of older people.

Improving Practice – mainly for carers

Funded by Comic Relief and developed in partnership with Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) this pack of leaflets is aimed, primarily, at staff working in homes for older people. Written simply and informatively they are, however, a useful and valuable resource for anyone.

Topics were selected after analysing calls to the helplines of both charities with additional feedback from a range of care homes.

A central message is that there are many relatively simple aspects of care that can make all the difference to the daily lives of older people living in care homes.


Living in a Care Home – mainly for residents, families and friends

The Living in a care home series is written for relatives and friends who have little experience of care homes and what to expect.

Care practices and elements of living in a care home are explained in these leaflets so that people can make an informed judgement about what is good, bad or indifferent practice.
