Join the Which? campaign to fix the care system

Compassionate Elder CareThe Consumer Association (Which?) is campaigning to get the Government to fix the care system, as a matter of priority. Which? estimates that ‘the care home population is already bigger than the City of Manchester and it’s set to grow rapidly over the coming years’.

As increasing numbers of care homes are closing, there are insufficient places for people who need them.  Care homes are struggling to provide the care which individuals need. For some residents this can mean that they are not receiving adequate care, or are having to move to another care home when their existing care home closes. To particpate in the Which? campaign, please follow this link:  https://campaigns.which.co.uk/care-system
