Campaign to save Park Hall care home

Save our Care Homes march in ReigateThis morning I joined a march from Park Hall Care Home in Reigate – with those with family at the care home and others challenging the plans to shut the County Council’s last six residential care homes. Lots of beeps from passing cars in support as well as discussions on Reigate High Street.

The current set-up works well – combining day care, respite and residential care. Transferring these residents is not just a risk for them but will be a loss in accountability – as outsourced contracts are forced to choose between lower wages or less care to save money.
