Brits concerned they won’t get publicly funded care in later life

A new survey commissioned by Curam has revealed a majority of UK adults are concerned about access to publicly funded care in later life.

The survey, conducted in March this year, has revealed that a staggering 73% of UK adults are worried about not having access to publicly funded care in their later life. The survey, of 2000 UK adults, highlights the growing concern over the state of the UK care system.

It also revealed the causes of the current problems with the UK care system according to the public. Funding issues were cited by 57% of respondents, while 59% blamed a failure to pay carers much more than minimum wage. Other factors highlighted failings by successive governments (50%), an inefficient care system (44%), and a lack of well-trained carers (41%).
