Sir David was pleased to meet with representatives from Where is the Care and commented afterwards, saying:
“Care for the elderly is an issue that I take a great interest in as it effects so many of my constituents, whether it be for themselves or their family. I think it is fantastic that Where is the Care are bringing to light the issues that people in Southend West have experienced and I hope that this will encourage the continuing improvements in care that we have seen in recent years.”
He also made reference to his own personal connection with care issues, “As someone who has a 103-year old Mother I am more than aware of the challenges that can be presented to us when caring for an elderly family member. Everyone deserves to receive fantastic care irrespective of their age, and if this is not the case, those responsible for poor care must be held accountable.”
