Region: Europe Implementation report Strengthening governance and accountability, Reorienting the model of care, Coordinating services within and across sectors Source: The King´s Fund

Enhanced health in care homes can be achieved by close co-ordination between care homes and the range of health services required to meet the needs of older people living in the care homes. When these services work closely together – for example, through regular GP visits to care homes and regular comprehensive assessments – they can actively promote good health rather than just reacting to ill health.
