The report – Elderly Care Crisis – A Tipping Point – is correct and urgent action is required now to ensure Social Care can not only exist after 2029, but that it is sustainable and quality care is the required outcome.
However, will or is this Government totally committed to ensure Social Care can be continued.
The forthcoming Budget on 11 March could be a start which is why I have an Open Message to the new Chancellor of the Exchequer The Right Honourable Rishi Sunak MP.
Will he and his the rest of the Government listen, we will have to wait and see.
However, the Crisis is not just confined to the Elderly, but includes the whole area of Social Care for Children and Adults, be it Home Care, Supported Living, Nursing and Residential Care, Respite Care and any others.
For, if the collapse of Social Care is allowed to occur, then Health Care will also collapse for they are both entwined.
I am involved in Social Care, so I wish to introduce you to my latest Petition, ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care’.
My own family and many other families rely on Social Care to help us look after our relatives who have major needs relating to care. We all have, over the years, done what we can to help manage these needs of our relatives, but there comes a time when the needs exceed what we ourselves can realistically deliver, hence our, now, reliance on Social Care and without it our relatives needs will not be met.
If the crisis in Social Care is not met, this will then increase the crisis in health.
Please could you consider signing the petition and then sharing it.
Lack of funding for Social Care is a major problem and this leads to
- not only insufficient funding for all forms of Social Care
a lack of people wishing to come into the profession due to the abysmal rate of pay
partly causing a lack of quality of care being delivered in some areas and other problems
Please could you see if you could show your support by signing this petition and then sharing it wherever you can.
