Abstract

David Rowland writes that the government’s social care reform plans do not address two fundamental problems: the lack of adequate state funding and the unsustainable business models behind care homes. He argues that to avoid a financial meltdown in the sector, the government must urgently regulate it, and then provide additional funds to cover the true costs of delivering quality care.
