A Time to Care offers a hard-hitting insiders account of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in residential care homes around Britain.

A deeply personal story with much wider resonance, it lays bare what you don’t know and what care home operators don’t want you to know. Describing the toll inflicted by the pandemic on residents and staff alike, it also recalls the courage and generosity inspired by extraordinary circumstances.

A Time to Care is a challenge, a call to action, and a plea for you not to look away. It sheds light on the day-to-day experiences of care home residents, calling for greater recognition of care staff and the work they do. Above all, it asks you to care.


Eleanor Bloomfield holds a doctorate in medieval drama and has a background in research and teaching.
