The Care Home web pages are being developed to provide and share information to those who live, work or care for someone who lives in a care home within the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area.
The content in these pages will develop over the next few months in partnership with Care Home communities as we ask, listen and do what matters most to those who live in our care homes.
Care Home Assurance Visits
Care Home Assurance visits take place at least twice per year in each care home. These visits aim to provide additional clinical input, support and guidance. Staff within the Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) visit the care home and complete the Care Home Assurance Tool. Each visit will identify areas of good practice as well as areas for improvement. Where areas for improvement have been identified local discussion takes place. An action plan is developed and the care home staff work in collaboration with the HSCP staff to achieve these improvements. From these visits there may be areas where support will be offered to enhance and improve safe, effective, person centred care for the residents.
