A report has warned that people have such low expectations of care homes that they "settle for average".
According to the Alzheimer's Society, out of 1,000 relatives and carers surveyed:
- Just over 40 per cent believe their loved ones enjoyed good quality of life
- Less than 30 per cent said loved ones received a poor quality of life
A separate poll of 2,000 UK adults found:
- Two thirds feel the care sector is not doing enough to combat abuse in care homes
- Many said they feel "scared" at the thought of moving into a care home in later life
