Best and worst areas for care home quality in England revealed in new research

A stark variation in the quality of care homes at a regional and local authority level across England has been highlighted by new research.

The north-west is the worst performing region in England when it comes to the proportion of satisfactory care homes, whilst London is the best performing region. In some areas such as Stockport or Salford, older people and their families face little choice of quality care, with three in five homes rated not good enough. That’s according to new analysis by Independent Age, the older people’s charity.
