Our reaction to Age UK announcement that 1.4 million older people don't receive the care they need


Our reaction to Age UK's report released today revealing that 1.4 million over 65s don’t have the support they need:

 

Contact the Elderly’s CEO Meryl Davies commented:

 

“This research by Age UK reflects what we at Contact the Elderly know through our work with thousands of the most isolated older people in the UK, that over a million older people are struggling to get by without the support that they need.

 

While there’s no doubt that our government must take heed of the needs of our older people and provide significantly more funding to care services, it’s also important that communities step up, look out for older neighbours and help them live fulfilled, happy lives.”
