SAGA COMMENTS ON WHICH REPORT INTO HOMECARE

Friday 16 March 2012

Commenting on the Which? investigation into domiciliary care, Dr Ros Altmann, director-general, Saga said:

SAGA COMMENTS ON WHICH REPORT INTO HOMECARE

"The vast majority of carers are conscientious and committed, but there are far too many examples of where carers or the care system has let down some of society's most vulnerable citizens.  It is critical that we raise the bar when it comes to recruiting, training and rewarding carers and that the care system is adequately funded to allow quality time, rather than conveyor belt care."

Saga’s aim is to ensure society, has a more positive and compassionate attitude towards caring for older people. It’s time to bring back the ‘care’ in caring.”
