About the Care Homes Programme (NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement)

[A brief reference to this item appears in: Dementia and Elderly Care: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 3 Issue 3, October 2012].


The NHS Institute‘s Care Homes Programme works with care home residents, their families, care home staff and managers. The aim is to adapt and develop a set of easy tools which have potential to:

  1. Empower staff to make the improvements desired by residents’ and their families.
  2. Improve safety.
  3. Improve internal systems and working relationships.
  4. Improve efficiency, releasing staff time to care for residents.

The leads for this programme are Liz Ward and Sophie Cowley. The programme operates through two workstreams:

Care Homes Wellbeing: which focuses on improving resident and staff experience by strengthening communication within care homes.

Care Homes Connect: which plans to extend the learning from Care Homes Wellbeing to improve external relationships across the wider health and social care community.
