Description

Blog article:
The Covid-19 crisis has had a disproportionate and devastating impact on care homes, including staff, residents and their families in the UK. Changes in care demands and staff shortages have had a negative impact on the 50% of care-home residents who have dementia and complex care needs. Care-home workers (CHWs), who are generally on low wages, can feel undervalued and have experienced higher levels of psychological distress during the pandemic.
