Carers Wales Response to the Older People’s Commissioners Report On Respite
Carers Wales has responded to the Older People's Commissioner for Wales' report on 'Rethinking Respite for People Affected by Dementia'.
Carers Wales would like to see the following:
- Increase and ring-fence the funding for carers’ breaks and ensure that there is more transparency and consistency about what is available.
- Ensure that there are enough respite and replacement care services available to meet the needs of carers and the people that they look after.
- Ensure that carers are consulted with and are fully engaged in deciding the future shape of replacement care services.
