Care home website goes live
We are excited to announce that our project to improve care home websites has taken a big step forward. One of our volunteers, Tony Bentley, has been working closely with Kaydar, a local care home, to develop a best-practice website for care homes… and now the result of all their hard work has gone live.
Our research last year identified that many County Durham care homes do not have clear information online, with even the basic details about fees and core services often missing. We hope the new website will act as a template that other care homes can follow to improve their own sites. We will be sharing our work with all the care home providers in the area and hope that, by promoting clearer, and more complete, information online, it will make it easier for families making difficult decisions at a stressful time.
