Parky's dignity report

On Sunday I blogged about how we need as a society to change our attitude to ageing and the priority we give to meeting the needs of older people.

Today, veteran broadcaster Michael Parkinson, who spent last year as ambassador for the government's Dignity in Care campaign, has published a report, My Year as National Dignity Ambassador. You can download it from the Department of Health website.

I haven't had time to read through the report yet. I'm guessing it won't grasp the nettle on the funding issue - Parky has never struck me as one to put his head above the parapet on political issues - but it should get the issue discussed more widely. BBC news report here.
