Research from Care England, the largest representative body for independent providers of adult social care, has shown that almost half of Brits (47%) have a holiday fund as opposed to only 3% that have a care home fund. Furthermore almost three quarters of Brits (73%) have no idea how much the average weekly cost of a room in residential care is and 56% of Brits have no idea as to whether they would be entitled to state funding for a stay in a care home.
Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, says:
“This new research from Care England comes at a time when social care is high on the political agenda. It shows that we as a sector need to do more to inform the public and dispel the myths that have evolved. We hope that communities will engage with Care Home Open Day on Friday 16 June as a means to celebrate their connections with their local community”.
Care Home Open Day takes place on Friday 16 June www.carehomeopenday.org.uk and it will focus on the importance of friendship thereby building on Care England’s research that 57% of people think that greater intervention with the local community can combat isolation. In addition, 6 in 10 people believe that making visiting hours more flexible would be helpful.
Care Home Open Day is yet another opportunity for care homes to be positioned at the hub of the community.
