Learning for Older People in Care Settings: Thoughts for Local Authorities
This guide is one of four, originally commissioned by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills. It is part of a range of actions undertaken by NIACE to improve access to learning opportunities by older people in care settings. The aim is to encourage those working with older people in care settings to understand the value of keeping people engaged and active through learning, and to recognise that learning is an essential and central aspect of providing care.
This guide is for local authority staff with responsibility for adult social care, health and wellbeing or managing services for older people.
