The guide to Improving Care for Older People, developed by NHS England in partnership with Age UK, Public Health England, and the Chief Fire Officer’s Association, is actually a collection of resources (some dating back several years). This collection aims to help people stay well, and continue living independently, for as long as possible. It was promoted at the time of Older People’s Day.
