Another Alarming Headline

Nowadays it seems as though not a day goes by without a scare story in the news about the state of health and social care in England. Yesterday the CQC warned that adult social care was fragile and had hit a ‘tipping point’ http://www.nationalhealthexecutive.com/Health-Care-News/cqc-warns-fragile-adult-social-care-at-a-tipping-point-

You may be wondering what this actually means? The statement boils down to a reduction of beds in the traditional residential and nursing care homes, has resulted in congestion within the National Health Service as more people requiring care are being kept in hospital. But, did you know that you don’t even need to be in any type of care home to receive care? A live in carer does exactly that- lives at home with you to provide the care you need. All our carers are fully qualified to give care, so they can assist with personal needs, medication prompts and cook tasty nutritious meals. They can accompany to social events, appointments and do the shopping as well as housekeeping. All this allows the client to remain in their own home, surrounded by the sights, smells and memories of home and family. Definitely no tipping point involved there!
