    Crisis in Care?

    I just had some disturbing news about my care agency. It seems the staff are leaving in droves but more clients are being taken on. Bottom line I won't get washed or shaved. If I didn't have this troll on my back I'd be a traveller. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜xx

    Oh Matthew, hope that doesn't happen! The care sector has been desperate for so many years, and now worse xx

      And, just when we thought it couldn't get worse, along came Covid and frightened off many carers too...

      My carers just got a pay rise, woop woop - now let's hope some good candidates apply to fill a vacancy 🀞🀞

      But yes Matthew, service provision is on a knife edge. xx

                Ambulances, nursing staff and everyone else not getting fuel. Food shortages because of no deliveries. Gas shortages. Lack of bus drivers and taxi drivers. Cold food distribution company supplying supermarkets has shut down. Meat shortages because they cant slaughter animals. Lack of social housing. House prices have risen. Covid. Crumbs πŸ™„
