Abstract

Care home residents who took part in a study by the Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU) at the University of Kent believe their experience of living in a care home has been better than they expected when they first moved in. Most of the residents, aged mainly in their 80s and 90s, told researchers that: They have more say and control over their lives in the home than they had expected. Their quality of life has improved compared with how it was before they moved in. Their health and other needs are being better met now than before they moved in. They are socialising in their care home as much as, or more than, they used to. They see their friends and relatives as much as, or more than, they used to. Their experience of being in a care home has been good. They have a good impression of care homes in general.
