Social Care Costs; Carelessness Costs More

The problem with adult social care, and many other policy areas affecting disabled people which I keep a weather eye and ear on, is that it is thought about in isolation. Admittedly, “thinking holistically to break down a silo mentality and achieve savings through partnership working and innovation”, otherwise known as “putting things all together and figuring out how one bit affects another” is a statistical and logical nightmare, akin to tipping 4 pieces of Ikea furniture out of their boxes, jumbling them up, and throwing away the instructions before beginning assembly with a hot glue gun. It’s difficult to work out what’s what and you need a lot of glue to hold anything together.
