Half of councils have not planned for elderly living

25 February 2020 – CHM Online

A report has found that around 45% of councils haven’t adequately planned for where elderly people in their communities will be living in 10 years’ time.

The report, Elderly Care Crisis: A Tipping Point, also predicts that by 2029, nursing and care home beds will run out, if capacity is not increased.

In addition, Government must address the rising cost of nursing and residential care, which is expected to increase by 16.1% and 14.9% respectively, over the next few years.
