Sharon spoke in the Second Reading debate on the Government's Care Bill.
Sharon used the opportunity to relay the concerns of the constituents who have emailed in, and particularly those who attended her listening event on social care, on the future of funding for social care, as well as the quality of services available to older people.
Sharon focussed on the Government's 'Care Con' - a cap of £72,000 on care costs, which will actually see pensioners pay up to £150,000 before it kicks in, and won't prevent them from having to sell their home.
Sharon also pressed Ministers on the need for medical professionals to play a key role in identifying young carers and ensuring they get the support they need, the lack of action to improve the working terms and conditions of the UK's army of professional care staff, and the need for all formal care providers to have regard to the human rights of the people they are looking after.
