Welcome to our research project website.

We know that many people have to find and pay for care as they get older but very little is known about what that is like for the person involved. Care can be many things from having someone to help in the house, with shopping or personal care. We wanted to find out how easy or difficult it is to find the right kind of care and what happens if needs change.  We interviewed older people who were receiving care up to 3 times over 18 months to catpure what happens over a period of time and whether any issues arise around the service that is being provided.  Our findings and the resources that we developed from our research are all now available under the “Publications” and “Resources” tabs above.
