Caring For The Elderly
Created by: Amanda Gillam, 27 September 2019
Elderly care - we all need to discuss it more openly and work to improve it here in the UK. Don't bury your head in the sand - it will be you one day being packed off to that care home.
Elderly care is a topic too often ignored in society unless it's a newspaper headline that occasionally reminds us how poor the elderly care is in this country; but we then all stick our heads in the sand again. The "Sandwich Generation" - still responsible for our older children and still working - don't want to imagine our parents become unable to look after themselves. The elderly dreading the prospect of being unable to look after themselves and being packed off to a care home they don't want to go to. Surely we all deserve better?
