  • Social care blamed for 50,000 emergency admissions

    Social care blamed for 50,000 emergency admissions

    25.05.18 A “threadbare” social care system led to more than 50,000 avoidable emergency admissions for older people with dementia last year, according to an Alzheimer’s Society investigation. The Society also found that A&E admissions had risen by 70% in the last five years as social care funding had been cut by 40%, a situation which paramedics said was “soul destroying” and “utterly depressing”. The investigation results, consisting of freedom of information requests to NHS trusts in England and a survey of paramedics, are contained in a new report and appeared ahead of care minister Caroline Dinenage’s address to the Society’s annual conference next week. Three quarters of paramedics surveyed said that the problem of unnecessary admissions had become more common and half reported dealing with instances every week. One in five said the problem arose every day.

  • Select committee calls for more support for working carers

    Select committee calls for more support for working carers

    24.05.18 Carers UK has welcomed a cross-party parliamentary report calling for more support for working carers. The Work and Pensions Select Committee of MPs made a series of recommendations for unpaid family carers to be helped to remain in or return to paid work. Carers UK director of policy Emily Holzhausen said that a “staggering” three million people juggled a paid job with caring for an older or disabled person. “Supporting carers to juggle work and care makes strong economic as well as social sense,” she said. “The UK economy needs people to continue working for longer, but this also increases the likelihood of caring whilst working. The committee's recommendations are both deliverable and desirable, and there is a growing expectation amongst the public that government must do more to support carers.”
