Live-in care provider supporting older people to vote

With the general election just around the corner, a national live-in care provider is ensuring those they care for are supported to make their vote.

Promedica24 provides around the clock care in people’s own homes. The 1-1 support that is provided enables care workers to accompany individuals when accessing the community, including visiting the polling station.

Care workers have also been on hand to remind people of their right to vote, provide them with accessible information and ensure they are aware of the general election deadlines.

Paula Beaney, Quality Assurance Director at Promedica24, commented: “Everyone has the right to vote, and with social care continuing to be a high priority subject for many, those who are receiving care and support need to have their chance to help shape the future.”Care home staff helping older people put on their coats so they can go outside and vote

Older people continue to be more likely to vote than the younger generations, and YouGov reported that 84% of people aged 70+ turned out to vote in the 2017 general election.

Paula added: “Although older people are more likely to vote, when they become less able it inevitably becomes more difficult for them to do this. This could be for a number of reasons including mobility or awareness of the date and location of the voting station.

“As during the previous elections, our carers will be on hand to support the people they look after in exercising their voting rights. Many of our clients find it very important to be able to visit the polling station on election day and have their say on national and local matters. But some of them would not be able to do this without carer’s assistance.

“Our role is to integrate those we care for into the community and ensure they still feel important in their role in society. Voting is one way they can do this.”

Promedica24 provides live-in care, as an alternative to residential care, allowing those with care needs to remain in the comfort of their own home.
