Is it fair?
Prison officers are a lot of things but is it fair that they are also expected to take on the role of healthcare assistance in an enviroment wholley unsuited for elderly prisoners.
The NHS do a great job in our jails but do not have the staff or resources to provide care home facility in our establishments.
Regardless of their offence, is it fair that eldery prisoners should remain in jail, years after their tariff because there is nowhere to send them to see out their final years.
Councils now have the responsibility of providing social care for prisoners in custody and they are managing to do this. The problems arise when it is time for them to be released. Where do you send them? Some prisoners can't go to normal care homes because of the nature of there offence so expensive care packages are put in place so that their basic care needs are meet.
It makes sense to me that a forensic care home is opened so that eldery prisoners can leave jail at the right time thus allievating the pressure on prison officers, the NHS and save local authorities vasts amounts of money which could be better spent. Struggling to cope
