People should have more control of social care services

NICE is urging councils in England to help adults have more control over day-to-day tasks like cooking and cleaning.

In a new guideline, out for public consultation, NICE says adults who need social care should feel in control and be able to live life as they want.

In 2016, only a third of adults using social care services (33%) felt they had as much control as they wanted over their daily life.
