  • The Scottish Parliament - how has the pandemic impacted social care services at home

    Created: 12/08/2020

    The Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee has launched a call for views on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on social care services at home. MSPs on the Committee want to hear about people’s experiences of social care at home during the pandemic, whether people felt safe and supported and what lessons should be learned should there be a second wave or future outbreaks.

    Specifically, they want to hear from:

    • individuals (adults 18+) receiving care at home;
    • family members and unpaid carers; and
    • staff, managers or owners of a care at home services, or personal assistants providing care.

    They have created this short survey to understand the impact of the pandemic on care at home services, and what issues it has highlighted, improved or made worse. Through the survey, there will also be opportunities to engage further with this inquiry. The survey is anonymous and closes on Monday 07 September.

    The call for views is also available in an easy read version.
