Our vision at Independent Age is that as we grow older, we all have the opportunity to live well with dignity, choice and purpose. Social care can play a key role in fulfilling this vision by providing high quality support, when people need it, through a system that is stable, well-resourced and gives older people choice over the care that they receive. However, we hear from many people that their experiences of care services fall far short of these aspirations.
In this document we set out some of the distinct challenges we know people face and our calls for actions relating to each of these.
