Nurses call for funding boost for aged care system
A new report from Age UK suggests that there are a growing number of elderly people in the UK who rely on free care and services from charit우리카지노ies.
It estimates that over a million over 65-years-old in the UK rely on social care funding. The figure is projected to rise from an estimated 2.2 million by 2060.
“We have a very strong culture of dependency, which is the number one factor when people say to us they don’t want to take time off work to support themselves,” said Dr Simon Trenchard, Professor and chair of the Age UK team.
“But we have to ask – are these people being supported by the services they need, or do they have an obligation to support themselves? Or is time on waiting list for some services, like nursing home care, simply unnecessary?”
Age UK’s team also released an analysis of a national register maintained by Ofqual, the professional bodies which check and monitor the qualifications and qualifications of those wishing to work.
Around one third of those seeking to work claim a jobseeker’s allowance (JSA). This is often for work related care, such as nursing homes, mental health services, adult social care, child protection services, nursing homes and housing바카라사이트.
And the number of people in care will grow at the expense of people being in nursing homes, or on the waiting list for carers, says the report.
In total, more than half of the people in care were aged over 65 who do not have a job in the household.
“Over the next decade, the number of people in care will rise from about 4 million to around 7 million, and the number of people who don’t have a job will soar from 8 percent to 14 percent,” Dr Trenchard said.
He highlighted that the government had promised to provide £1 billion in cash to support families and carers who needed it for the next decade to achieve social justice, but that had not materialised.
While the figures were not surprising given the huge demand for carer support for older people, these figures were particularly concerning.
“It’s been highlighted by all sorts of people including politicians in the campaign that social care in the UK is becoming so fragmented and expensive that it has to be privatised, but these numbers show it’s not true, at least not until 2022,” said Dr바카라사이트 Trenchard.
To meet these challenges, age is becoming a key issue in public debat
