COVID-19 impacts homecare

Working with international colleagues from around the world we are hoping to...

Explore the impact of COVID 19 on community care for people with rare and complex health and social care needs. We know from research by ourselves and others that homecare services have been severely disrupted due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. While many carers have a significantly increased caring load, others are having to manage with reduced community support for health and social care, with a lack of respite facilities causing particular challenges. This project hopes to secure funding to help develop policy and practice guidelines to support home and community focused care for people living with complex care needs.
