Featured Projects

Managing the Home Care Circus

'Managing the Home Care Circus' is an investigation undertaken by the Elders Council of older people's experiences of home care in Newcastle.  The investigation was done by older people for older people and presents key messages about how best we can prepare, seek and manage home care support.

We have presented our key messages in an animation based on the conversations we had with older people.  You can see the animation here https://tinyurl.com/66w9m8wt.

We have also published a report of our findings which is available on our website and you can also order a hard copy from the office.
