Report reveals looming heart-breaking care crisis for disabled adults and families | Care Industry News


  • 3 in 4 (75%) family carers say they have no long-term plan for what will happen when they can no longer provide support to their loved one, according to the disability charity Sense.
  • Over two thirds (67%) of families caring for disabled adults with complex needs live in fear of what will happen to their loved one when they are no longer able to provide support.
  • 9 out of 10 (95%) family carers say they have little to no trust in local authorities to provide adequate support to their loved one. Only 1 in 3 local authorities know how many disabled adults are being cared for by family and friends at home, with only 1 in 4 councils able to support carers to make contingency plans for future care options.
  • Sense is calling on central government to adequately resource local authorities to provide better support for disabled people and their families, now and in the future.
