No more procrastination, says Help the Aged

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Reports on the state of the care system have had a depressingly similar flavour over the last two decades according to Help the Aged, commenting on a new report, The future of care funding: Time for a change, published by Caring Choices.

Mervyn Kohler, special adviser for Help the Aged, said caring for an ageing society was the biggest social challenge we face.

“After 20 years of drift and procrastination this report, and an apparent change of tone from Government seem to offer a way forward,” said Mr Kohler.

“All too often the issue of social care is brushed under the carpet or put in the ‘too hard’ basket.”
