|Abstract:||This paper is focused on the quality of care afforded to frail older people. Positive developments are looked at and ongoing concerns are outlined. The issues covered include the following: lower numbers going into care; too many older people entering permanent care via 'respite' care; the average person has little chance of entering a council-staffed care home; privately funded residents miss out on the reviews afforded to local authority supported residents; and the protection provided by the Mental Capacity Act 2005.|
