COVID-19 & Care Homes: A conversation

Care homes are feeling the impact of COVID-19. From difficulties sourcing personal protective equipment for staff to the isolation felt by many residents staying in their rooms without visits from family and friends, alongside grief and decisions over whether to accept new residents, care homes are having to adapt and change in extremely difficult circumstances.

The South West Integrated Personalised Care team (SWIPC) is partnering with the South West Academic Health Science Network (SW AHSN) and the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (PenARC) to host a conversation to:

  • Understand people’s experiences of how COVID-19 is impacting the care home sector;
  • Highlight what is currently working well or not;
  • Identify and develop a picture of ‘what could be’ from the perspectives of people most involved with care home provision.

Your invitation to participate

We are hosting a conversation on Zoom for anyone involved in care homes – from care home residents and providers to commissioners and policy makers – on Wednesday 13 May from 2.00-3.30pm. This conversation will explore what is currently happening within the sector in response to COVID-19 and ask what could be different in the future.

This is the first in a series of encounters with different media. The meeting will be recorded and analysed in order to share both narrative and emerging theory with the aim of improving outcomes.
