The new Care and Support Bill will be going through Parliament in October. The idea seems to be to bring all adult care under one law replacing the present complex system.
This is an opportunity to improve things for carers too. Personally I would never have obtained Continuing Care for my mum if it weren't for Gransnet support. This isn't the way it's supposed to be!
Letters to Norman Lamb, present Minister of State for Care and Support, will give him ammunition to improve the lot of carers. Carers need to be recognised as such and given the support and information they need without having to fight for it when they have enough else on their plates.
Sorry, I haven't expressed myself very well. I've just been trying to précis down a letter to Mr Lamb to a reasonable length!
