Commissioner welcomes new human rights guidance from CSSIW

24.3.17

Older People’s Commissioner for Wales, Sarah Rochira, said:

“I welcome CSSIW’s new human rights guidance, which has been published in response to my Review into the quality of life and care of older people living in care homes.

“The guidance has a particular focus on what good care looks like and how people’s rights can be promoted, and will ensure that rights are considered across the inspection process.

“As Commissioner, I have been clear that a rights-based approach is vital to drive up the quality of care and support and ensure it meets people’s individual needs. CSSIW’s new approach process will play an important part in making rights real for older people living in care homes across Wales so that they can have the best possible quality of life.”
