There is no excuse for poor care

poor care

How serious are we about this very important statement? My view is that our political leaders are not. Demand for care services is forecast to grow significantly – Budgets are being slashed – Resources are already stretched to breaking point – and we’re facing the integration of health and social services into one delivery model (a disaster waiting to happen).

If you really mean it Mr Minister – Let’s start doing something about it before it’s too late and more vulnerable people are left socially isolated and at risk of harm or death.

Let’s avert the disaster – Let’s stop burying our heads in the sand – Let’s stop relying on volunteers and let’s start putting more professionally managed and properly funded services in place to serve the vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities. Now that’s a Big Society vision!!
