A report by Independent Age has revealed that care homes are getting worse in a third of local areas.
It warns that many elderly residents have a ‘real fear’ of moving into nearby homes as standards are so poor.
In some local councils including Manchester and Portsmouth as many as four in ten care homes are failing.
The analysis found that in 37% of authorities, the number of homes rated ‘inadequate’ or ‘requires improvement’ had increased compared to 2018.
