You don't choose to have Alzheimers - but it could easily choose you - and you won't be able to do anything about it.
of this kind closing is not a very nice thing to happen, and personally I am against all closures of this kind, but you say NHS is closing them.? I thought these two homes were run by Housing Associations,
67 Birch Avenue is a one-storey purpose built home, which provides nursing care for older people with dementia. The home has four, ten bed units with an interlinking corridor surrounding a large garden and patio area. Each unit has a communal lounge and dining room. All of the forty bedrooms are single and all have en-suite facilities. A central kitchen and laundry serve the home. The home is near to the centre of Chapel town, bus routes and local amenities. A car park is available. Copies of the last Commission For Social Care inspection reports were available for service users and their families to read. The weekly fee is Â£460.
