We’ve put together a directory of products, services and ideas that care home staff may find useful.

The TCH team recognises that it can be challenging for care professionals to find time to research the many options available to them, so we’ve created this comprehensive guide, which we’ll expand as we move forward.

Got a suggestion for us to include? Please tell us.
