DO M.P`s LORDS KNOW THE DIFFERENCE

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
Yet again during debates within the Lords / Parliament they, that is those who govern us talked of the costs of "social care " but many made the mistake of talking of "social care " in relation to the elderly person living in a "residential care home" social care can be provided within the elderly persons own home or within a residential home ...when in a residential care home the elderly person has to pay for 1, the board and lodgings- in Scotland they call this the rent 2, if the elderly resident needs extra care with feeding , toileting,dressing and personal hygiene they will need social care.. in Scotland social care is free but the elderly person will still have to pay the rent / board and lodgings ...............
Links please George, so we know what you are talking about in the context that it was said.
They dont even know that DLA is NOT an out of work benefit. Either that or they are lying so they can use that as another stick to beat people with.
it was on B.B.C. today in parliament ..they talk of social care as if it was the total package for residential care and as we know we have 2 payments for care within care homes ..rent + care
during a debate last night within the house of lords about the cost to the tax payer for expenses for the bishops ..it was said some claim nothing but some claim over £20-000 per year one lord said the £300 per day was needed to allow the bishops to stay in hotels and not sleep on the embankment..is that not what the unemployed had to do during the river pageant.....or lose their benefits ???
plus raise the carers allowance ...HS2 is dead in the water.. the chancellor had pledged some 20 billion and more for this high speed rail link that would have enabled the business men to have an extra 30 minutes sleep before they set off to work in London .. lets put the cash to good use and fund social care from thr tax payer ...

Not yet we don't George - not in England. That may happen eventually but it hasn't happened yet.
