The charity Age UK wants the enforced care worker training to teach staff how to notify authorities about suspected abuse or the poor treatment of the elderly by colleagues.
We also need to make sure that staff with the right values are recruited into caring roles and that they remain supported by a system that values and rewards the important work they do.
The push for training comes after a series of scandals in which elderly and disabled adults have been mistreated in NHS hospitals and private care homes.
