Mystified by the care system

leave a comment »

The Social Care Institute for Excellence has released research that reveals many people are mystified by the care system.

The majority of Britons admit they do not know what options are available to them and two thirds have no idea of care costs.

Key findings include:

  • Majority of adults unaware of what care is available (59%) and have no idea how much it costs (66%)
  • More than two thirds of people say that they are not likely to consider care decisions until they become urgent, increasing the risk of not choosing the best provision
  • A quarter of adults who already use care provision say they struggled to find appropriate care and now feel they ended up with the wrong type of support.
  • Is this scary? Most definitely, yes.
