In this episode of the Informed Choice Podcast, Martin talks about a few subjects related to long-term care.

This is a specialist advice area for Martin and it is becoming increasingly important with our ageing population.

As a result of our longer lives, more of us are likely to need long-term care in later life.

Martin talks about three reports in this episode of the podcast, starting with Situation Critical, with was recently debated at The Astellas Innovation Debate.

This challenges current perceptions of long-term care support from government in later life, with two-thirds of those surveyed expecting to receive free, high quality social care from the goverment.

Martin move on to discuss a blog by Dr Sabine Best, Head of Research at Marie Curie.

This examines new research which found people with advanced dementia in care homes across the UK don’t always receive the care they need at the end of their life.

He finishes by looking at a report by Natural England published earlier this month, Is it nice outside? Consulting people living with dementia and their carers about engaging with the natural environment.

Interaction with the natural environment is an important aspect of quality of life for people living with dementia.
