With having seen first hand the benefits delivered to carers and users this petition was one that I put my name on straight away
To: Sefton Council and MP’s
Our campaign is to challenge the proposed closure of the Brookdale Resource Centre in Ainsdale. We need the council and MP’s to listen and work out a way to keep this centre open.
Why is this important?
It is a vital service for elderly people with Dementia/Alzheimer’s and should stay open. This centre is situated in Ainsdale, Southport. It is the only Dementia specialist care centre in a catchment area of approximately 150,000 people. The council proposes to close it and move everybody across to another centre. This unit with specialist trained staff provides a day care service for older people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and deals with cases from early onset to the later stages of the illness. It provides a vital life-line for carers giving them the required respite whilst being assured of the safety, health and well-being of their loved ones at the centre. The centre is geographically perfectly placed in the middle of the areas it services.
