Bexton Court Elderly Day Care Service, Knutsford, Cheshire East WA16

Location: UK » North West » WA

In collusion with East Cheshire Hospital Trust, Cheshire East’s Bexton Court Day Care for the elderly frail and demented was shut more than one year ago. That was stated to be ‘temporary’ It was stated to be ‘reopening by the end of January 2011’. All of its furniture was shipped out immediately.

We are now in November 2011.. with no sign of that facility being reopened. Statements have been made that there is no intention of reopening in that building. This permanent closure has NOT been through Cheshire East’s Scrutiny process as legally it should have been.

Former service users of that facility have been officially stated (FOIA) to have variously been placed into full time care, or they are travelling as far afield - by the day - as Congleton and Crewe.. where their carers cannot reach to oversee that their care is suitable, kind and not abusive.
