The interactive report for the Rapid Learning Initiative into the Transmission of COVID-19 within Care Homes is available here
As someone connected to a Care Home in Northern Ireland we want to hear about your experience so we can identify good practice and understand what actions are required to improve your experience. The purpose of this project is to explore the experience of residents living in Care Homes and relatives & staff engaging with Care Homes. This is part of the Rapid Learning Initiative into the Transmission of COVID-19 within Care Homes led by the Department of Health.
How Do I Tell My Story?
I am a resident
As a resident of a Care Home you can tell your story using a printed copy. Every Care Home will receive surveys with stamped addressed envelopes which can be completed by you. You can be supported by a relative, your activity coordinator or any healthcare professional to complete the survey. The 10,000 More Voices team is also available during office hours and can complete the survey with you through a telephone call or video conference. Contact us
