Preview – Dispatches: Bupa Care Homes Undercover


Care home quality and the cost of care in later life is a topic that finds itself returning to front page news.

With the recent abuse and neglect allegation of elderly patients in care, Dispatches goes undercover to investigate at specialist dementia care homes run by Bupa.

Jackie Long investigates claims of short-staffed facilities and a lack of resources, questionable treatments offered to residents and safety worries. It’s a picture that raises serious questions about how society should look after an ageing population and the quality of care provided by one of Britain’s biggest brands.
