Action really does need to be taken regarding the status of social care workers. Employees need to see the sector as a very attractive career that has been paid adequately. This is one of the recommendations that have been made by the Welsh politicians and this is after they expressed concern over how fragile the independent care sector is. The report essentially says that the cost for caring for an ageing population is hard work and the work needs to be absolutely on par. Those who work in homecare jobs and even private nursing jobs will know this more than anyone.
A carer for three disabled children has come out to say that she is sick and tired of people telling to act like a saint. She has come out to say that she wants to have a drink with her friends and she also wants to relax a bit as well. She has even stated that if one child is in an SEN meeting, the other one is having a complete meltdown. The children that she looks after are absolutely relentless and they are also continually having drawn out hospital visits as well. The eldest has Asperger syndrome and the 13 year old that she has is blind with autism as well. The youngest is registered blind with Aspie as well and she is continually saying that she can’t pretend that it is easy.
It appears that the DVLA are paving the way when you look at the list of carer friendly employers. They have become the first member of a new organisation and they have also launched a membership program as well. This is known as being the Employers for Carers and this service has the overall goal of creating a carer-friendly workplace. This has all been backed by the Welsh government and they want to provide hands-on advice to those who need it the most. After all, 1 in 9 are carers in Wales and a lot of them struggle to balance their work with caring for their friends and even their loved ones.
Matt Hancock is from the Health and Social Care division. He has sent out a letter to the sector stating that the government does have preparations for a no-deal Brexit, should this happen.
A number of failings has pushed none other than Dominic Grieve to try and push for a brand new law. The idea is that cameras are going to be compulsory in all public areas. If he is successful then 400,000 vulnerable people would be given a very high level of protection. This would also help to protect carers as well. The urgency is to try and address the scandal of the amount of preventable neglect and this is where the vulnerable and the frail should feel safe. This is going to be one of the many issues that is going to be talked about when Parliament resumes the talks in September. Tony Grieve has come out to say that any potential problems that do exist in care environments are going to be talked about and the favour of them is very strong.

Nearly 200 paid carers are having to give up their jobs so that they can take care of their loved ones. When you look at the big picture, you will see that this is not acceptable at all and a charity has come out to say this. After all, carers put so much work in every single day to try and make sure that people are always getting the support that they need but at the moment they aren’t getting the support they need to do the job to the best of their ability.
Eating a good, healthy and balanced diet is incredibly crucial if you want to maintain a good level of health. You also need to make sure that you maintain a good level of nutrition as well, but this is easier said than done. After all, when individuals are ill, or even recovering from an operation, the body is much weaker and during this time, you may find it difficult to get all of the nutrition you need.
Carers UK have warmly welcomed the cross party report from the MPS and from the House of Commons.
