Do you have experience of home care – BBC Inside Out would like to hear from you

We received this request from Andy Smythe. Can you help?

I’m a producer for the BBC Inside Out programme in the Northeast and Cumbria and I’m currently looking at the issue of care at home for the elderly.

Most councils are making cuts to their social care budgets and there are concerns that it could affect the quality of services.  I’d like to talk to people from the Northeast & Cumbria, in confidence if they prefer, who have experience of care in the home.

Do you or a relative receive a care package from a private company?  If so is the quality of care good, or could it be better?

Are you someone who works for a private company providing this type of care?  Is the nature of the job changing?

Without accurate accounts from real people we can’t give a truthful picture, so I’d
very much like anyone who feels strongly about this issue to get in touch.

My email address is andy.smythe@bbc.co.uk

Many thanks for reading this,

Andy.

    I hope the bbc is able to get to the bottom of what actually happens within the arena of home care, there is much to learn about what goes behind in closed doors
