Wrexham services launch older people's charter

Posted on 24 March 2011

People paying for long term care in Wrexham should be among those to benefit from a new dignity charter which has been drawn up by a number of social and health groups in the area.

Led by Wrexham Council, the Older People's Dignity in Care Charter is designed to improve the standard of care for the elderly and get feedback on the experiences of service users, BBC News reports.

Groups taking part include Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, the Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham, Age Concern North East Wales and British Red Cross.

"Clearly we need to adapt to the needs of our ageing population and tackling ageism and age discrimination is an important part of this process," said Dr Ceri Cryer, programme manager at Age Cymru.

Recently, Enfield Council praised its local home care services for showing considerable improvement on the last six months, according to the Enfield Independent.
