Motion ref. S5M-22860.1

Recognising the Importance of Family Caregivers - Amendment

Submitted by: Donald Cameron, Highlands and Islands, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party.
Date lodged: Tuesday, September 29, 2020

Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, September 30, 2020

As an amendment to motion S5M-22860 in the name of Monica Lennon (Recognising the Importance of Family Caregivers), leave out from "concludes that it is time" to "similar approach" and insert "welcomes the review into a National Care Service; acknowledges the very significant contribution of social care workers, both in general and in terms of the COVID-19 pandemic; shares the concerns of families calling for better care home visiting arrangements, given that limited or no contact with family caregivers is having a negative impact, not only on the health and wellbeing of care home residents, including those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, but also on children, young people and other adults affected by restrictions on their caregivers, and believes that this policy should be reviewed; calls for an urgent public inquiry into the unacceptable transfer of COVID-19-positive patients to care homes".
