Older Persons’ Experience of Care Services – Independent Age Survey

Independent Age have asked us to let people know about the launch of their online public survey to find out about older people’s (people aged 65 and over) experience of seeking care and support from their local authority in England. They would especially like to hear from carers and service users who have undergone an assessment or review for care and support. They hope that the survey will provide them with insights into how local authorities are progressing following the implementation of the Care Act in April 2015.

Although the survey is designed to be online they invite those people who would like to respond offline to write a letter detailing their experiences. Address is: Policy, Independent Age 18 Avonmore Road, London, W14 8RR.
