From the headline it seems the Mail cares less about the elderly than about attacking the alleged culprits. Although with so many ‘culprits’ it seems likely the fault lies with the system and not with the individual carers. Once again, the Mail doesn’t actually care about the issue, only about blame.
Wow, privatisation and cuts has led to an uncaring profit driven culture, who’d have thought it? Not the Fail and right-wing that’s for sure.
Alot of carers are paid the absolute bog standard minimum per hour, whilst the private contractor are paid many times that, and they’re required to see more people, or spend less time with each individual, So you can see where the money is going in this little scam.
That is a very cynical way of looking at it Phil and I do not think that most people would agree with your view. It is blatantly clear that this story is about human kindness and if you knew anything about The Mail you’d know that, that was the case.
