Older people’s charity Independent Age has called for free personal care for those aged 65 and over to help solve the social care crisis.
One in five care homes in England are rated Requires Improvement or Inadequate although their total number has declined, new analysis highlights.
Two-thirds (66%) of MPs believe there are not enough high quality cared homes in England, according to a new poll.
Only one in 10 MPs in England think the social care system is fit for purpose, Independent Age has found.
Independent Age says it would be useful for care sector to provide the kind of information the NHS collects.
