Guide to home care and human rights

United Kingdom

Your rights to home care’’ aims to empower older people so they know they are entitled  to a home care service that respects their human rights, however funded, and what to do if those rights are at risk. The guide follows the launch of the Commission’s ‘Close to Home’ inquiry report one year ago, which showed that many older people are reluctant to complain about inadequate care.

The guide features:

  • What to look for when searching for a home care provider;
  • Case studies with examples;
  • A checklist of rights home care users are entitled to;
  • Funding for home care services;
  • How to make a complaint.
