Prompted by yvm (yourvoicematters) is this the future of care homes for older people (and others) in the UK?
All supported by articles of Lenin Nightingale based on international reading;
Care homes for the wealthy- little provision for they who are LA funded.
Old people sent abroad to cheaper care homes.
Nurses no longer needed- replaced by cheaper staff, especially overseas staff.
Could the desire for/use of euthanesia increase??
Re-open Nightingale wards.
Warehouse type care of the poor- low standard of care may become the norm “they desrve it; they did not save money to pay themselves for care”.
More insurance or charity schemes- we provide carers at home if you leave us your house in your will.
Relatives legally enforced to care for their parents- link this to inadequate provision of Homecare.
Care by community groups may increase- along with communal living.
Number of homeless will increase even more.
Unless- nationalisation occurs.
Any more anybody ?
