Just hours after a leaked report revealed the scale of crisis in England's mental health services, the Telegraph has published an equally damming report detailing the failings in Mental Health provision in Elderly Care settings.
Is this fair criticism to an already troubled sector or just another attack on an underfunded and under-resourced industry?
Almost half of all older people in care homes are depressed and most think that the condition is now a "normal part of ageing", a landmark NHS report has warned. Four in 10 people in nursing homes are depressed while one in five older people who live in their own homes suffer from the condition, with rates among older women even higher. The report, commissioned by NHS England and supported by the Government, found that "older people's needs are neglected" with most of them not even seeking treatment.
