A Norfolk County Council spokesperson said they're trying to get Janet a new care package "without a break if possible", and their in-house team will support her "in the near future".
A Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson said more than 90% of care home staff have received their first dose of a Covid-19 jab adding that “vaccines save lives” and it is their duty to “reduce the risk for vulnerable people in care homes”.
The government announced this month they would increase National Insurance to better fund social care, but the money won’t arrive until next year and council leaders say it’s not enough. There’s about 300,000 people in England still waiting to get assessed for care.
Another 40,000 workers could leave the sector because of the mandatory vaccination policy, the government estimates. The deadline for care staff to receive their first dose passes today.
Care providers are handing back contracts, unable to recruit staff because of low wages, the pandemic and Brexit, they say. There’s an estimated 100,000 unfilled job vacancies.
Norfolk resident Janet Holmes, 81, who is disabled, said she could be left without care on Monday as her provider says they don’t have enough staff to support her. She added: “I am (worried). So come Monday, I’m on my own.”
Elderly and vulnerable people “will die” due to the staffing crisis gripping the care sector, a provider told Channel 4 News. Michael Millage, of PCT Care Services, said: “I think it’s so serious, that people will die.”
