Funding Adult Social Care over the next decade: Who cares?

This report from BUPA suggests that considerable strain could be put on the availability of residential care as councils cut back on spending on care home costs at a time of increased demand from an ageing population. While there is no specific mention of extra care, the report calls for closer integration of health and social care to find alternative care solutions and simplification of local planning arrangements to ensure greater flexibility in the development of new care homes.
