Is the personalisation of social care stalling.
That phrase takes us both back to the halycon days of CarerWatch , R !
Perhaps reworded ... " How to shift the responsibility of social care back to the end users ? "
( CHC / NHS Contining Healthcare ... POINTON ... ignored nationwide ??? )
Almost akin to UC ... once unleashed , just follow the devastation.
( UC v. My Social Wage ? )
The rollout of Direct Payments ... little fanfare and ... as WE predicted , nothing but problems
... even the use of DPs to pay family members STILL up in the stratosphere as to yes / no / on
some occasions ?
What should work on paper will only work in practice if it is funded correctly.
If only they had listened ... and then acted ... on what we proposed ?
A decade into the " New Way " ... with millions saved the frustration and sense of hopelessness
with the current system held together with little more that sticky tape and sticking plaster ?
UNLIKE FOOD BANKS , THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO " SOCIAL CARE BANKS " OUT THERE !
UNLESS , OF COURSE , FAMILY / KINSHIP CARERS COULD BE CONSTRUED AS VOLUNTEERS PROVIDING SUCH A SERVICE ???
