PRIORITY 3 : ADDRESS FAILURES IN ADULT SOCIAL CARE SERVICES. SUPPORT OUR CARERS.

We have an ageing population in Chesham and Amersham and many people need Adult Social Care services. Covid-19 has brought into sharp focus the inadequacies of those services. This is evident by the rating you gave to Adult Social Care services at just 5.5 out of 10.

The reality is most families simply cannot access the services or support they need and end up trying to do everything themselves.

Social Care Quotes

The Lib Dems are keen to understand the deeper issues and experiences of carers, people being cared for and their families. We are conducting a full survey of residents to fully understand their needs.If you can spare a few minutes please take our survey here : https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Adultcaresurvey/

Going forward, we will promote the £1000 for carers campaign, continue to support COVID-19 groups, bring forward plans within one year to reform Bucks-funded Adult Social Care provision. Given the increase in care at home and peoples' desire to stay in their homes for as long as possible, we will work with specialist partners to improve home care provision.
