Save the Brookdale in Ainsdale.

Save the Brookdale in Ainsdale.

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.

Reasons for signing

  • My Mother had Dementia and, due to poor care, she died suddenly, as a result of a ruptured stomach. Whilst in the the care of a Nursing Home both the above and the theft of her jewellery were due to the poor support at the time. If she had had the care of Brookdale, all the above may have been avoided. I feel people in a similar situation require as much support as is possible.
  • Centres like this provide invaluable support to patients and their families.
  • cos me nan has it!!
