Product description

Why should you buy Care Standards: A Practical Guide


Care Standards: A Practical Guide, written by Paul Ridout and a team of specialist contributors, is a popular and detailed guide to the various regulatory requirements placed upon residential care in registered homes.

This new edition has been significantly rewritten to reflect important changes in the law since the previous edition, including the enactment of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 which established the Care Quality Commission and the new Tribunal system affecting the Care Standards Tribunal.

Care Standards: A Practical Guide is essential reading for care home owners, those advising them or their residents and all those involved in implementing the care standards regime.


"This book explains the regulations and national minimum standards in plain language, which is easily understood whilst remaining comprehensive. An excellent point of reference ..."  ALC
