Care Home Performance Across England March 2017
A stark variation in the quality of care homes at a regional and local authority level across England has been highlighted by new research. The North West is the worst performing region in England when it comes to the proportion of satisfactory care homes, whilst London is the best performing region. In some areas such as Stockport or Salford, older people and their families face little choice of quality care, with 3 in 5 homes rated not good enough. That’s according to new analysis by Independent Age, the older people’s charity.
