Care: the Tories don’t.

The phrase “social care” is anathema to the Conservatives because they don’t care about anybody apart from themselves.

Personally, This Writer believes everyone who is capable of looking after a relative who has care needs should do so. My own family took in my grandmother during her later years and it was, in fact, rewarding.

But there are many people who don’t have this option, and it seems the Tories are likely to leave them high and dry.

If you can’t pay – they’ll take it away.

The growing crisis in adult social care risks creating a “system for the rich” that leaves poor communities unable to access the essential help they need, ministers are being warned.

Two care homes are closing for every new facility that opens as providers attempt to stay afloat amid a multibillion-pound shortfall in funding. However, evidence seen by the Observer suggests places are disappearing from care homes that already have a shortfall of beds, while new facilities are opening for those who can pay their own way.
