People living in nursing and residential care homes are vulnerable to the effects of poor quality care.
They rely on staff to assist them with the activities of daily living, to help them manage long term conditions and to support them in leading fulfilling lives.
Care home staff need to be caring, compassionate and educated.
Government now state that at least 50 of care assistants working in care homes must have a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in health and social care at level two or above.

Care assistants working with the older person in home care, intermediate care and hospital settings will also find this book helpful.
