Care petition rejected by Cheshire East

Petition on Respite Care

 

 

At the Cheshire East Council meeting on 22 October, Charlotte Peters-Rock presented a petition with over 4,000 signatures asking for Cheshire East Council to re-open and keep open public intermediate care, dementia care and respite care.

 

The Conservative Cabinet member proposed that the petition be received and that no further action be taken. The Labour group argued that more should be done in response to the petition and proposed an amendment that the Council should keep open Hollins View and Lincoln House for in-house respite care for the foreseeable future.

In a named vote the amendment was lost with all Conservative Councillors voting against. All Labour and other opposition councillors voted for the amendment apart from one councillor from Alderley Edge.

Once I was diagnosed with "early onset dementia’, I/we were offered a care package that included Crossroads care. Then, a few months later, guess what? Cheshire East withdrew funding! (The young lady who used to come for a couple of hours a week being the last know, of course.) So I later read, CEC had come to an “amicable arrangement” with Crossroads Care. That left the young lady financially worse and us, without that little bit of a care package. Outcome? I realized what an uncaring council CE is! And, oh I could go on, and on and on.
