Earlier this year, Age Cymru’s advice and support projects saw worrying delays in older people being assessed by social care for their needs. They also saw increasing delays in sourcing care packages once an assessment had been completed, so Age Cymru decided to investigate further and publish the report on their findings.
The full report and an executive summary can be found on Age Cymru’s campaigns page here: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/cymru/get-involved/campaigns/why-are-we-waiting/
The report makes 7 recommendations that should help drive improvements in social care.
Feel free to distribute to your networks.
And if anyone has any questions about the report, please get in touch – [email protected]
