My elderly mother was a self caring 80 year old who attended A/E with pnuemonia . This was not diagnosed and 4 weeks later is now in need of long term care - The NHS will continue to struggle unless care of the elderly improves. The initial investment in treatment early in illness could maintain independence and save many thousands of pounds.
Basic care costs very little time but make huge amounts of difference
