Tucked away in the 'Guardian' last week was a small article which spelt big implications for thousands of old men and women in Britain :
Warning over care of the elderly and disabled after £2.7 billion cut
It made the following points, that :
* social care chiefs in Britain warn that more old men and women and people with disabilities will be denied state-funded care support over the next two years as local authority finances continue to take a battering from funding cuts.
* many recipients of basic state-funded care such as help with either washing and eating or meals on wheels, could face a reduced service, while others will lose out on care support altogether.
