The new role will help someone who has lost their liberty speak up.
Care Home Visitors will support our Relevant Person Representative (RPR) advocates.
The role of the paid RPR is performed in the absence of friends or family. To ensure that the person living a the care/residential home, who lacks capacity to make decisions about their care or treatment, is cared for in the least restrictive way possible.
RPR Advocates visit the cared-for person regularly and ensure that they are being well looked after. A Care Home Visitor would work alongside the RPR Advocate to support the Advocate’s work.
