Live-in Care

Delays in transfer of care

Recent data published by NHS England shows a 24% decrease in delayed transfer of care when comparing June 2017 to June 2018. Though the trend shows very positive signs there were still over 134,000 delayed days of care in June 2018. The main reason for NHS delays was because patients were awaiting further non acute NHS care. For social care delays, patients were often waiting for care packages to be set up in their own homes.

‘Awareness raising’ on a NATIONAL scale….

The Director of Agincare Live-in Care Services, Adam Luckhurst, recently attended a forum in London with other leading live-in providers to discuss how, collectively; the overall awareness of live-in care can be raised.

Council spending on care drops by 8%

The National Audit Office (NAO) recently published figures showing that local authority spending in adult social care had fallen by 8% in real terms between 2010-11 and 2012-13. Savings have been made by councils operating in a more efficient way, but NAO researchers have also discovered evidence that authorities are paying providers less as well. This puts pressure on the care provider and means they can only offer basic care. The NAO raised the obvious concerns confirmed by  an official inquiry last month which said central government has "no idea" how long the system can cope.
