This research was commissioned as part of a formal inquiry into older people and human rights in home care in England. It is based on in-depth interviews with a cross section of 40 older people receiving home care arranged mostly through their local authority but also, in a small number of cases, privately. As well as exploring potential risks to human rights or failure to address them, the research was also concerned with good practice and the positive impact that home care can have on human rights for many older people.
