Age UK response to new Health & Social Care Information Centre reports on adult social care released recently.

Caroline Abrahams, Charity Director at Age UK said: 

'Every day we hear from older people and families struggling to get the care they need and these new statistics explain why. They show different aspects of a social care system in very serious trouble, with ever fewer older people being offered help and worries about the quality of what's available for those lucky enough to be given a service.

'Older people typically don't like "making a fuss" but they deserve so much better.

'When the Chancellor announces the outcomes of his Spending Review in a few weeks’ time Age UK looks to him to act to address the growing scandal that is the system of care and support for older people in this country. It is no exaggeration to say its future and the wellbeing of millions of older people depends on the decisions he makes.'
