We believe the recommendations in the report offer a unique opportunity to improve Care at Home services in Greater Manchester.
The report includes the outcomes of the stakeholder event, on the 12th December 2018, when we launched the recommendations, and held action planning conversations on how the report recommendations might be implemented.
We want the people who deliver, commission, campaign for or otherwise support ‘Care at Home’ services, particularly for the elderly, to take on this challenge by implementing, as far as possible, the ‘Recommendations of the Care and Home Inquiry’.

During 6 weeks of deliberation our Inquiry produced compelling recommendations to transform Care at Home services in Greater Manchester.
The Inquiry in the Challenge of Care at Home aimed at finding better ways to provide Care at Home. That work on an emotional, person centred and practical level.
Keeping people with care needs safe, happy and well in their own home is one of the biggest challenges faced by individuals, their families, the NHS, Local Authorities and their partners.
We use a broad interpretation of ‘Care at Home’, recognising the wide range of professionals, services and networks of support that are involved. Care at Home might be delivered in the individuals home. Or a care home or social housing. And connects and impacts on hospital stays and respite care.
At the launch event we presented the findings of our 6 week ‘deliberative inquiry’, which involved a range of professionals hearing the lived experiences of people using care at home services.
