Ros explains why we really need better incentives and a sensible framework to help people plan to save for care needs in later life, at the moment they have no idea what to do.
highlights that almost no money is being set aside for care, even though people know it is important. They are just not saving.
Ros explains why local authority cutbacks on care spending are making the business models for care homes unsustainable. Without better funding, we can’t get better care.
Ros welcomes the decision by the UK Payments council to reverse its plans to abolish cheques. A victory for common sense.
Ros explains that inflation is hitting older people very hard and those on fixed incomes are in a dreadful situation.
Ros wrote a blog for the Telegraph website commenting on the crisis in our care system, with tales of elderly neglect and care homes facing closure, and calling for improved care funding.
