Domiciliary Care in Northern Ireland: A Report of the Commissioner's Summit

This report provides comprehensive documentary on domiciliary care in Northern Ireland for older people, including costs, commissioning, workforce issues, a review of standards and inspection and the regulatory framework. A section of the report is specific to dementia and points to the lack of dementia-specific standards within domiciliary care. Reference is made to the need for domiciliary care to support the ministerial commitment to enable people with dementia to remain independent in their own home environment for as long as is possible. The Commissioner recommends the creation of Dementia specific standards and that user experiences are included in inspection processes.
