People and #socialcare

  1. People are rightly outraged and concerned by treatment of older people in residential care settings
  2. People are horrified by events such as Winterbourne View, and how vulnerable people are treated in some institutions
  3. People very rarely think about any future care and support needs they might have, and what they might do about this
  4. People (or those that have thought about it) generally agree there isn’t enough money in the social care system
  5. People don’t want to sell their house to help meet any future care and support needs they might have
  6. People don’t want to pay for social care from general taxation
  7. People: we need to get a grip. Politicians: so do you.
