Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales, 2012


Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) is proposing to phase out the use of categories as part of the registration of services with effect from April 2013.


At present categories such as old age, dementia, mental infirmity and learning disability are applied. From April 2013 CSSIW intend describing care homes as either:

  • Care homes providing personal care, or;
  • Care homes providing nursing care.

The intention will be to gradually remove such conditions for existing registered services over three years from April 2013.
