Bleak picture for UK carers

ITV News, with Carers UK, has begun a week long televised campaign on carers. Their investigation uncovers a bleak picture for the UK's 6 million carers.

Care homes

Comment on demand, provision and competition of the average UK care home

This is a small unit offering accommodation for five residents each having their own room and virtually upon a hostel type basis.

We are unaware of any similar concerns within the immediate neighbourhood and would comment that, in our opinion, this is of little relevance since the current occupants are fed to the property from County Half, within Micahels Road.

.High standards of accommodation are provided within the property and as a result good levels of occupancy are maintained.

The home is not registered and accordingly no care is provided to the resident.

However, a warden/caretaker is employed, from 9 am until 5 pm Monday to Friday. Overnight and at weekends, no staff supervision is undertaken, although we are informed the Warden does make herself available and attends at the property upon an ad hoc basis.
