Carer Burn Out

Social care teams have made a dent in waiting lists but more carer burnout and mental health needs means that fewer people are getting the support and care they need.

New findings from a survey of social care leaders shows short-term funding boosts from Government has helped reduce the number of people waiting for care and increased support for people at home. But increases in care delivered are not keeping pace with increased needs, according to a report by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services.

Despite the progress, care waiting lists remain far too high and ADASS is warning could rise again this winter without more staff. And a record NHS backlog, rising mental health needs, support around domestic abuse of people with care and support needs, and carer breakdown means most councils are not confident they can offer the minimum social care support in their communities required by law.
