Liz Kendall: Instead of blaming families for care crisis, Government should be facing up to its responsibilities

Liz Kendall MP, Labour's Shadow Minister for Care and Older People, in response to Norman Lamb's interview in the Daily Telegraph, said:

"Britain’s 6 million unpaid family carers aren’t being neglectful of their loved ones and they don’t expect the state to do everything – far from it.

"They look after their frail elderly and disabled relatives day in day out, often with precious little help and support.

"This Government is making their lives much harder by cutting local council care budgets. Fewer families are now getting vital services like home help for free, and charges for home care, and residential and respite care are increasing.

"Families and friends want to help their elderly relatives and neighbours, but they need proper support to do so. Instead of blaming
families for the care crisis, the Government should be facing up to its responsibilities by putting in place a decent and fair system for funding social care now and in future."
