Dementia Care Review (Care Quality Commission)

Summary

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has announced a dementia-themed inspection programme to investigate the quality of dementia care in England.

About 150 care homes and acute hospitals will be inspected to check the care and support provided to people with dementia. Inspections are to investigate:

  1. How well people living with dementia are supported to help maintain their physical and mental wellbeing.
  2. Whether effective care can reduce admissions to hospital from care homes, and avoid unnecessary lengthy hospital stays.
  3. How effectively care services can work together, ensuring smooth transitions for patients between services.
