Equality and Human Rights commission – your views wanted on home care

Do you or someone you know receive home care or are you a carer?

We want to know your views on the quality of care delivered to older people (aged 65 and over) in the home (the good and the bad) in relation to human rights. By human rights we mean whether people are treated with respect and dignity, for example receiving appropriate privacy, and have choice and control over how they live.

We have compiled a short list of questions to help you feed back to us which should take no longer than fifteen minutes to answer.

The Commission’s formal Inquiry launches on the 10th November. Our evidence gathering will run until 4th February 2011.

    The person i care for is extremely vulnerable and under threat from this governments welfare reforms, which could rob him of benefits and care and even the roof over his head. Without his carers he couldn’t survive, but if his benefits reduce or get taken away, it will end game for him.
