Healthwatch Home Care Research
Healthwatch Shropshire is currently undertaking research into Home Care in Shropshire. Home care (also known as domiciliary care) is often seen as the ‘front line’ of social care delivery and is critical to the longstanding intention to enable people to ‘age in place’ and to deliver care as close as possible to people’s homes. Healthwatch Shropshire is asking those receiving home care in Shropshire to tell them about their experiences. You can find out more about this and access the survey here: https://www.healthwatchshropshire.co.uk/home-care-questionnaire
