Action on health and care

Record NHS waiting lists, older patients unable to return home from hospital because of the crisis in care, councils lacking the funds to maintain vital services, care homes facing closure through spiralling costs… the cash-strapped health and care sector is struggling to meet the needs of many of those who use it most at a time of rising demand.

As the biggest users of health and care services, older people find themselves in the front line of the battle for the wellbeing of the nation.

So how can the Age Action Alliance make a positive contribution?

By bringing together providers, charities and experts with the very people who rely most on these services, we hope to arrive at workable solutions as well as flag up and make our voices heard on the issues. Topics will include:

  • Independent living
  • Care options and funding
  • Home adaptations
  • Maintaining health and wellbeing
  • Support and benefits
  • Telecare
  • Living with dementia
  • Health insurance

Get involved

We believe constructive dialogue and informed decision making is always the way forward and so we hope to use this section to provide a forum for debate and a home for helpful information and advice.
