Do we care about care?

MOUNT Denys is recommended for closure by East Sussex County Council.

The East Sussex County Council pamphlet A practical guide for supporting people with dementia, has a brief introductory statement from the director of adult services which reads: “East Sussex has one of the highest dementia rates in the UK. We are committed to doing all we can to help people and their carers live with the disease.”

It would appear present policy towards Mount Denys contradicts this bold statement of care.
