Six key priorities or ‘building blocks’ for better care so everyone can age well are set out in a new paper, ‘Care 2030’, published by the independent charity, Hallmark Foundation.
Hallmark Foundation has committed to backing Care Home Open Week in 2022 following its success earlier this year. The foundation is one of the founding patrons of the Championing Social Care partnership which leads on organising the week.
Recommendations in the paper include:
- Creating an Office for Care and Ageing Well which would monitor and report unmet care needs in our ageing society and promote sustainable ways to deliver better care and prevention.
- A renewed drive to make direct payments work for older and disabled people using care,
- A focus on personal strengths and relationships,
- Imaginative approaches to recruiting and developing care workers and future leaders,
- Improvements in developing lifelong homes and supporting family carers and
- A smooth transition from children’s care services to adult support.
