Social Care for Elders to Be Limited

Charitable institutions are protesting strongly against indications from the annual report of the Commission for Social Care Inspection//.

Accordingly, councils in UK, will be limiting the social care provided to elders, to those who are totally dependant on others. This will exclude those who have mobility difficulties and those who suffer from depression.

Says Dame Denise Platt, head of the government's social care inspectorate,” Smoke signals coming out of the Treasury, indicate that Mr. Brown (the chancellor), will not provide significant extra funding for social care before 2010. The best older people could hope for is to ensure the situation does not deteriorate. My message to the chancellor is: please give as much attention to the state of care for older people as you are giving to keeping children out of poverty.”

The proportion of people who are over 65 is growing - over the next 20 years projections indicate it will rise by 53%. The number of young disabled people is also increasing. Between 1975 and 2002 it rose by 62%.

To cope with this, two-thirds of councils only offer support to those with substantial needs.

Says Age Concern’s (a charity for elders) director general Gordon Lishman "This is a damning indictment of a social care system that is failing older people. Not providing services for people with so-called moderate needs causes much anguish for the individual - but can also result in much higher and more expensive care needs in the future."
