Alliance calls for improved OAP care.

AN ALLIANCE of voluntary and professional organisations is calling on the Welsh Government to improve the provision of social care for older people in Wales.

It follows the release of a Social Services Improvement Agency (SSIA) report 'Better Support at Lower Cost'.

The Welsh Reablement Alliance - formed by groups including WRVS, Age Cymru, the Stroke Association in Wales and Care & Repair Cymru - has welcomed the SSIA report, supported its conclusions and is calling for better access to effective reablement services across Wales.

Sally Rivers, WRVS head of services for Wales, said: "The Alliance is campaigning for the development of reablement services for older people in Wales.

"This can be achieved by putting together a Welsh quality framework, which would be a useful guide for local authorities. It's really important there is also a focus on helping people to integrate back into their community after a stay in hospital, to make sure people don't feel isolated."
