Key issues for care providers§
Opinion piece by Kathy Roberts, CPA in CareTalk:
“As I consider the thoughts passing through my mind at 3 in the morning, it always seems to settle on the same theme: “What would I want for social care and can it happen at a time when everything is so uncertain?”
“From the smallest to the largest care service providers across the country, all share a singular ambition; to enable people to live as independently as possible, living the life they chose.”
