  9. 9. Do you seriously think my generation is dreaming of care in later life that involves: Being warehoused in an institution – can an institution ever be a real home? Isolated from family and friends without access to the internet? Being patronised because of my age and ability? My safety having to be monitored by a CCTV camera?
