Access to Social Care is an area that can sometimes confuse. Access to social care can go deeper than many think. It is the denial of access of choice and the opportunity to express ones needs that perhaps only a small percentage of disabled people unable to voice their thoughts that concerns me.
In such situations co-production with relatives and carers may not be in the best interest of the individual and it is in such circumstances that care decisions are often currently made that favour the care provider rather than the individual.
Obviously that is in very extreme cases but the culture of providing care that suits the service provider rather than the service user effects many disabled people unable to communicate conventionally.
This discussion thread welcomes anyone with experience or views to discuss this openly.
