More questions :
Does the care worker get paid for the time spent on the road, or just for the time spent in capacity of care worker?
Does the person receiving the care also pay for the service and are they charged on an hourly rate or part of ?
Do Social Services pay the £12 hourly rate for 24 hour's care for each patient, or for the total amount of time the patient receives care?
The reason I ask is because as a council tax payer on a pension, I just wonder where my council tax ends up. I hope it's not being used for 24 hour care on a patient who receives only 1-2 hours care per every 24hours, because I could do with some of that too !
Maybe it's in anticipation of all the dementia sufferers who shall be cared for in their homes ? Ha Ha! In that case the staff need training in 'dementia care'.
Nobody could run a business suitably on £12 per hour for each patient and give £7.00 plus mileage to all their 24 hour care employees. plus N.I stamp and Pension payments.
