Care Home Training
According to the recent paper published in The Lancet public health journal, almost 190,000 more people aged 65 years or older will require care by 2035 to cope with the rise in demand, making the rise of 86 per cent. These finding come amid already existing concerns and challenges of care sector where they are already struggling to cope with steadily rising costs and cuts on funding.
