Elderly 'robbed of dignity' by failing social care services
An unprecedented coalition of more than 60 government advisers, charity directors and independent experts is demanding urgent and fundamental reform to care and home help services in England.
Thousands are forced to sell their homes and use up their savings to pay rising care bills each year, while businesses are losing experienced staff who are forced to quit to look after their relatives.
In a letter published in The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday, the experts say that a lack of political leadership must not be allowed to condemn 800,000 frail pensioners to a life of loneliness any longer.
