Allied health profession (AHP) guide: enhancing health in care homes


Timely access to AHP services supports personalised care, independence, and reduces avoidable admission to urgent care services. This guide supports AHPs and other health and care staff to make faster progress in improving care for people living in care homes.

The guide provides practical examples of how AHPs can support implementation and roll-out of the framework for enhanced health in care homes (EHCH), and highlights elements of the framework that can be supported by AHP services, including:

  • enhanced primary care support
  • nutrition and hydration
  • rehabilitation and reablement
  • end of life and dementia care
  • workforce
  • digital and technology.
