Consultation on personal care at home26th November 2009
Health Secretary Andy Burnham has introduced a plan that could see older people benefit from free personal home care.
Mr Burnham said the Personal Care at Home Bill would give hundreds of thousands of people the independence they want as well as the comfort of staying in their own homes for longer, providing the proposals are passed by Parliament. The proposals would guarantee free personal care for 280,000 people suffering from conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and dementia, with a further 130,000 provided with the equipment and services needed to retain their independence.
