The Nice Report – taking care of our elderly

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have published new guidelines around the care of our elderly in care homes. The report stresses that a focus on good oral hygiene could significantly improve the quality of life for many people and that funding should be made available to assist staff in assisting residents to meet their dental needs. Links to the recommendation made by the report and recommendations for staff at care homes can be accessed here.
