Age UK say, “No-one should be left without the care they need or forced to sell their home to get help. But at the moment this could happen to any one of us. Our new Government has the power to fix this.”
Age UK have created a letter to Boris Johnson for you to sign here. The contents of the letter are below.
Dear Prime Minister,
Everyone should be able to get good quality care when they need it. However, at the moment our broken system condemns 1.5 million older people to struggle on alone. It robs them of their dignity, leaves families without support, and costs people their life savings.
Please keep your promise and set out a plan to fix care for good.
We need a new national system that is fair, free at the point of use and available to all of us when we need it.
