Building better care homes for adults –
Design, planning and construction considerations for new or converted care homes for adults

In their words:

“This guidance has been completely revised in light of the new Health and Social Care Standards, being
implemented from April 2018. These are radically different from the old standards, and much more
person-led and outcome-focused. They apply across health and social care provision rather than to
specific settings like care homes, so detailed guidance like this is even more important. This guidance
sets out our expectations on a number of key elements of care home building design and room size.”
