Kingswood closure

THE threatened closure of Kingswood Park home at March will become reality on May 6 after the consultation, even though they never listen to public opinion; but it has to take place by law.

This action has come hot on the heels of the Chatteris Alzheimer’s Friday Group losing their funding, in their case no negotiation, just a month’s notice.

However, in both cases it is the dementia patients who are being hard hit, changes in their daily lives have a big impact on them - both they and their carers have to deal with going into the unknown.

In both of these tragic cases the loved ones have been kept in the dark until the last minute. A little over a month does not give people much time to look at alternatives.

I hope those who make these decisions do not have to face the same sort of treatment.
