R&RA Factsheets series – download free

  • Dental Care Leaflet
    What care homes can do to help residents maintain their oral health.
    [Update now in progress, but still very helpful: see also “Keep Smiling”.]
  • Dental Care Wall Poster
    Simple easy to follow guidance to remind care staff and inform relatives.
    [One word of warning! It has been helpfully pointed out that the advice on this poster to soak dentures in cleaning solution once a week, but “some people prefer to do it daily”, needs an update. Some of the preparations now on the market may actually be harmful to denture materials if overused, so users should always check and follow the manufacturers’ instructions. ]
  • Taking Care of Hearing and Sight
    A quality of life issue for residents and staff of care homes.
