New standards for home care launched

National care standards covering services provided at home were
launched by Malcolm Chisholm, minister for health and community

The standards will cover all home care services for people of
all ages with mental health problems, physical and sensory
impairments and learning disabilities. They are to be administered
by the Scottish Commission for Regulation of Care and will be in
addition to the residential care standards launched in

Chisholm said: “It is unacceptable that in the 21st
century our most vulnerable children and adults are receiving care
at home without a proper system to regulate that care.”
