How dad was failed by a broken care system

With reform repeatedly promised, debated and ditched, The QT today launches a wide-ranging series that looks at the deeply flawed and broken social care sector from all angles. QT correspondent Jane Hall starts with a personal look at DO WE CARE? and looks at the history of modern social care
  • A story which is typical of the frustrations felt by millions of families at failures in social care
  • Staff shortages, poor wages, lack of coherent policy and financial burden placed on local authorities are all factors
  • Age UK estimates 2.6m people in England alone aged 50-plus aren’t receiving the care and support they need
