Channel 4 have issued and public concern regarding home [ care saying “more than quarter of care companies are not meeting standards on care and welfare.” Whistle blowing charity has stated that have received
60% more calls and cases in the last six months and that the care quality commission has received hundreds of calls to report home care in recent months. The investigation revealed a complex and failing system. Workers have describe acute time pressures that force them to cut corners. Care agencies have reported that councils demand ever shorter visits and cheaper services. Councils themselves are feeling the squeeze of cuts and many of their duties towards older people are discretionary, not a legal duty, making older people's services an obvious target for cost cutting.
