Britain is walking into a care communication crisis where families fail to speak up about their long term care needs, according to new research by St James’s Place.

 

43% of people don’t broach these awkward conversations so that they’re not a burden to friends or family, while nearly 2 in 10 (17%) stay silent as they fear they won’t be able to afford the inevitable costs.  15% consider it no-one else’s business and 13% say find it too depressing to talk about.

 

A third (34%) of those aged 35-55 believe they are too young to be thinking about care, which worryingly means by the time they do, it will probably be too late.
