The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales has launched a new guide for older people, which provides crucial information about your rights when moving into and living in a care home.
The guide is designed to help older people and their families better understand the rights they have and includes information on a range of topics that are often of great concern:
Making decisions about care
Visiting and contact with family members
Access to services such as health services
Paying for care
The guide also provides information about what older people and their families can do if they are concerned that their rights are not being upheld and provides details of organisations that can offer help and support, including the Commissioner’s own Advice and Assistance team.
