There’s still time to take part in the Health and Care Research Wales Survey! It is now open until 13 July.
We have been collecting the views and concerns of older people who use social care services and the people who support them. The aim is to develop a plan for social care research that will enable older people in Wales to live happier and more fulfilling lives.
We want you to take part!
We have had a good response from older people and their carers, but we would like to hear from more practitioners delivering social care and support services to people in Wales aged 65 or over. This includes
- People working in a care home or supported living, and community care providers
- Social care professionals working for Local Authorities and private companies, such as care workers, social workers, occupational therapists and advocates
- Senior managers and policy leads for social care services
- People working in the third sector organisations and community groups, including volunteers, who give care and support to older people and unpaid carers
- Personal assistants
You don’t need to know about research – we just want to hear about your experiences and opinions.
What are the challenges you face in your role? What do you think works well? What could be improved regarding the delivery of support and care to older people? Do you have questions about the best ways to support the health, wellbeing and independence of older people?
The survey is anonymous and will only take 10 minutes to complete. It will close on 13 July.
