In Search of Accountability – A Review of the Neglect of Older People Living In Care Homes

July 2015

ADSS Cymru welcomes Margaret Flynn’s report and accepts and acknowledges the immense pain and distress caused to victims and families. We will study this report and reflect on its recommendations and the implications for current practice. The findings of the report, in terms of the serious neglect of very vulnerable people, will have implications for statutory agencies but also everybody who is involved in receiving and providing dignified, compassionate care.

The report can be found at: http://gov.wales/topics/health/publications/socialcare/reports/accountability/?lang=en (English)
