Stepping Forward


Aim: To be able to review, update and refresh the programme for care homes that have previously completed the Six Steps Programme

It is recommended that all care homes who have previously undertaken a Six Steps Programme have a review of their current position. It is recommended that homes undertake this at least every 2 years. If circumstances change significantly within a care home, this review should be undertaken following those changes.

This review will lead to a number of different options:

The care home may:

  • Be fully up to date with the programme and require no further action
  • Have some areas identified where further work/development is required
  • Need to undertake the whole programme
