The Government has committed to publishing a Green Paper by the summer, in which it will set out its proposals for care for older people.
An estimate of the number of people in Wallasey constituency who are living with unmet social care needs is not held centrally.
The Care Act 2014 requires that where an adult or carer appears to have care and support needs the local authority must carry out an assessment. It must then decide if the person has eligible needs by considering the outcomes the person wants to achieve, what needs they have, and how these impact on their wellbeing. Where a person is assessed as having eligible care and support needs, these must be met by their local authority. For those who do not meet the eligibility criteria, local authorities should signpost people to relevant services.
