Resource for Care Home Managers: supporting mental wellbeing of older people in care homes
The NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC) has launched a tailored resource for Care Home Managers to help support implementation of NICE quality standards on the mental wellbeing of older people in care homes.
A decline in mental quality of life should not be seen as an inevitable part of ageing. People living in care homes should have access to good mental and physical health services to play a full part in their care home community and enable a personally fulfilling quality of life.
About the NCCSC
The NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC) develops guidance about social care for children and adults on behalf of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). The NCCSC coproduces NICE guidance with people who use care, their families and friends, care providers and commissioners. The NCCSC also helps to ensure that people who commission, provide and use care services know about the NICE guidance and related quality standards and are supported to put them into practice.
It is a consortium led by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) with: Research in Practice; Research in Practice for Adults; Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre (EPPI-Centre); and Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU).
