Dame Judi Dench criticises 'inhumane' care homes31st January 2012
Actress Dame Judi Dench has said care homes for the elderly in Britain are "inhumane" and suggested families should care for their relatives at home.
The 77-year-old told Saga magazine: "I don’t really want to retire. I intend to go on working as long as I can because I still have a huge amount of energy. I’m certainly not ready to be packed away somewhere and told to put my feet up and go to bed at a certain time. As anyone who’s visited one of these homes knows, you just cannot put people into a circle of chairs and have them watching television all day – it’s inhumane."
