Engaging in meaningful social interaction is central to quality of life and this does not diminish following the move to a care home. However, social interaction in this setting can be difficult and is not always well supported by the environment or by staff. The aim of the action learning project discussed in this article was to explore the strategies that could be adopted by staff in their daily practice to support positive social interaction in care homes. The outcome was a framework to develop practice in care homes.
