Elderly care homes: Wales quality review by commissioner

Older people in care homes are to be asked about the quality of care they receive in a new review.

Sarah Rochira, the older people's commissioner for Wales, says she will use her legal powers to carry out the study.

It will involve speaking to older people, their families and carers to ensure more consistency of services.

The Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales has welcomed the move.

Ms Rochira spoke to Jamie Owen on BBC Wales Today.
