Abstract

In our ageing society, residential care homes provide an essential service for older adults who require daily care or who choose the companionship of other people.
Recent figures indicated that 17,678 residential care facilities provided a home for 426,000 older adults, approximately 16% of people over 65 years of age in the UK (Laing and Buisson 2014). Around 70% of people living in all care settings for older adults are thought to have dementia (Alzheimer’s Society 2014), although prevalence estimates for residential care homes are generally lower than those for nursing homes - 55.8% and 77% respectively, according to one study (Stewart et al 2014).
