Too many older people are not getting the care they deserve. Will you help us be there?
After her fall, Shirley contacted her local council for help and received a visit. They talked about what she needed and said they would get back to her. But after a month Shirley had heard nothing. After calling again and again she couldn’t get hold of anyone.
The crisis in care means that 1.4 million older people like Shirley aren’t getting the care and support they need – an increase of almost 20% in just 2 years.
