Impact and Reach Report 2016-17: Changing Practice, Changing Lives


My work during 2016-17 has continued to focus on ensuring that older people, particularly those who are vulnerable or at risk of harm, can access the services and support they need to have the best possible quality of life.

Alongside large-scale pieces of work like my GP Services report, and follow-up work linked to my ‘Dementia: more than just memory loss’ report and care home review, I have also undertaken extensive work to grow knowledge across our public services to ensure that professionals working with and for older people are able to deliver upon the aspirations that underpin new policies and legislation.

As Commissioner, I will continue to both support and challenge our public bodies to deliver the best support and services for older people and I look forward to continuing to work with you to drive change and improvements for older people across Wales.

Sarah Rochira // Older People's Commissioner for Wales
