This Annotated Bibliography is one output from a review of the available research evidence to support improved care in residential care homes as the needs of older people intensify. The review identified extremely little published evidence on residential care homes; the research base is almost exclusively related to provision of care in nursing homes.
Papers are organised in the following seven themes: residents and relatives views on care; medication in care homes; medical input into care homes; interface between care homes and other services; models of care improvement in care homes. A brief summary overview if provided for each section.
