International evidence shows a clear relationship between deaths in the wider community and deaths in care homes - i.e., the higher the transmission rate externally the more likely it is that those at higher risk will be affected. Govt policy led to this. https://t.co/9DMXX8lHb8
Shortage of careworkers in homecare and what could be done by the government to help. https://t.co/0icyeI61CE We have written to @Helen_Whately to share findings of a survey of @ukhca members & to suggest actions government could take to help us support people to live at home.
At least some MPs care about doing the job properly. “A very disappointing episode for scrutiny” @PeterBoneUK “Inaccurate information was given to the House” @Jacob_Rees_Mogg Persuasion not compulsion on vaccination of the care workforce risks fewer staff leaving.
Great to see you taking an interest in care @sajidjavid. Did you know there are more jobs in domiciliary care than in any other part of the sector. We look forward to welcoming you to homecare @ukhca
No excuse for people being stuck in hospital unnecessarily, or being placed in care homes when they could be in their own homes, because there is inadequate capacity in homecare. We need to invest in supporting people at home. Please write to your MP - https://t.co/SnxF9O0kyh
Excellent research & report from @ComIntCare evidencing through objective job evaluation by @HayGroup that careworkers' pay is at least 39% below equivalent roles in the public sector, despite the value added to the economy. We need a workforce strategy. https://t.co/Z0gaBdvLUx
Number of jobs in domiciliary care continues to increase, whilst those in residential care remain static, according to @skillsforcare. @ukhca continues to push government to view home-based and community support as central to vision for social care. https://t.co/EaxuJAgGYI
Urgent need for PM @BorisJohnson to keep his promise to #FixSocialCare. @1adass reports surge in requests for support for older & disabled people: https://t.co/6wyEGsRedy But there aren't enough careworkers to meet needs. Please write to your MP #KeepYourPromiseBoris @ukhca
Reform of social care is urgent - funding, commissioning and provision. Please join @ukhca in writing to your MP to urge them to make sure the PM @BorisJohnson keeps his promise to #FixSocialCare #KeepYourPromiseBoris https://t.co/Nl70quHs7D
Congratulations @sajidjavid. We welcome you to help us transform social care and ensure adequate investment, as a key part of your role as Secretary of State for Health *and* Social Care. Many older & disabled people living at home & other settings are relying on us all. @ukhca
Today, I joined 50 leaders in the care sector to urge @BorisJohnson to act on his promise to #FixSocialCare It’s nearly 100 wks since the PM made his promise. Since then 2m requests for care have been turned down. https://t.co/49AnhvbECX It's time to act #KeepYourPromiseBoris
10 steps to profitable business growth. Excited that @ukhca is partnering with @cranfieldmngmt to support SMEs in homecare with learning on how to grow sustainably. Details here: https://t.co/4wDnkMwWXH?
Thank you @HCareInsight for highlighting so many homecare leaders in your power list. Great to see so many @ukhca members. Much in homecare goes on quietly in communities, out of public view, but it is often life changing for individuals. https://t.co/qM2LqkRMEu
UKHCA have teamed up with IHCP to launch the '15 campaign in #NorthernIreland. We are calling for an end to both 15-minute #Homecare visits and fee rates of £15 per hour, which drive down pay rates for careworkers @ukhca https://t.co/BghJdXM2i2
England has become less generous on home care, while other countries have provided more https://t.co/YSJl14C4G8 via @instituteforgov Why the focus on institutional care when 92% people say they want to live well at home? @Helen_Whately @MattHancock
UK-wide survey of careworkers in adult social care - how has COVID-19 affected experience of work. https://t.co/3aMssVt4el Please share with careworkers. Thank you 😊 @ukhca @CPA_SocialCare @NCFCareForum @CareEngland @NationalCareAsc @scottishcare @careforumwales @AmmTowers
