Social care services for elderly people are being cut back.

Cutbacks 'rationing services for elderly' - Sunday Telegraph


"Hundreds of thousands of elderly people have had their "social care" cut in the past decade.
Seven in 10 councils in England have been forced to "ration" services since Labour came to power, according to the Local Government -Association.

Most town halls now provide services - including meals-on-wheels, trips to day centres and home visits from social workers - only to pensioners with "substantial" or "critical" needs.

Lack of funding means many councils now help only those who are seriously ill or incapacitated. In some cases, pensioners have had to sell their homes to help pay for private care, or ask their families to pick up the bill."
