John Kennedy’s care home inquiry

Joseph Rowntree Foundation, 25 October 2014

The final report of a personal inquiry into the crisis in UK care homes for older people.

Between May 2013 and May 2014, John Kennedy, the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust’s Director of Care Services, carried out an inquiry to discover how to address the crisis in the UK’s care homes, and to find out what makes a good care home.

During John’s inquiry, which built on existing JRF research, he spoke to a range of people involved in the care sector, and used social media to broaden the range of views.
