Replace Private Care Homes with National Care and Retirement Villages.

To create a prototype care and retirement village for elderly individuals who may require services, with a view to placing them in every locality, and replacing private owned care homes. Rather than place them into care homes, we place them into chalets on a site that includes social facilities. This is a more dignified, and progressive approach to elderly care rather than placing them into care homes. This also will provide greater infection control, and with the aid of on site support staff, we can treat and alleviate medical conditions depending on stage. The idea requires greater expansion but similar are successful in other countries. This would be run by the Scottish Government, and National Health Service.

Why the contribution is important

To protect the elderly who have worked and contributed to society for all their days, giving them better treatment when approaching end of life. This idea would also greatly reduce the risk of infectious outbreaks.

    Good idea but how does this help us come out of lockdown?

    i'm thinking beyond that point as this is the main failure that has arisen from the crisis. It's very clear that privatised care homes are not fit for purpose, and we need to develop something better. We are all gonna get old! I can provide a further breakdown of the idea, with designs, if the right people become interested.

    As I understand it there isn't much difference between state and private - if you have any savings or own a house you have to pay for a state care home anyway and your fees are used to subsidise local authority funded places and your own. Basically very few people can afford care in old age, inheritance tax & everything else the state exploits people who try to plan for a dignified old age.
