Care England CEO, Professor Martin Green OBE is correct that 2020 is a critical year for Social Care and the Budget on 11 March 2020 could go some way to solve some of the problems.
I have a petition ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care’, which I feel concurs with Professor Martin Green OBE comments. please see link
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
causing stress and exhaustion for family members providing care to their relatives, due to the lack of Social Care
Please could you see if you could show your support by signing this petition and then sharing it wherever you can.
