|firstname.lastname@example.org||My mother is 87 years old, type 2 diabetic, rh. arthritis and has three diagnosis of dementia to chose from. Her daycare at Tumbly Hill is outstanding and suits her down to the ground. Keeping her mentally active and properly fed as well as safe is unbeatable value even though she has to pay for it being one of the unfortunate that by a few pounds are too ‘wealthy’ and foot the bill for their own care. Nothing could take the place of the community at Tumbly Hill as a life line for my mother, she is happy, she is cheerful and full of laughter and loves going there. She cannot go into a home as she would be confused, angry, lonely, frightened not to mention depressed and therefor die. Her life has been hard enough without depriving her in her last years. She doesn’t have any Life choices left so leave her with the wonderful community and staff at Tumbly Hill.|

|firstname.lastname@example.org||Hi, my Uncle is 91 and visually impaired. He attends Bodley House Day Care each week, which is the only social contact he has with others during the week. He is able to have his hair cut whilst at Bodley, has social contact, a hot meal and enjoys the social activities organised. He is visually impaired, and is familiar with and therefore knows how to navigate the unit.|
At 91 and with his disabilities, any changes to his day care are very likely to mean that he disengages with this element of his weekly routine, and would not have social peer-contact from that point, which is a life line for him, his family, and myself as his registered carer.
Any change to the provision of this service would be a major blow, given his age and disability.
The staff at Bodley are amazing and the day care suits his needs (health, social and disability) him. The day care (self-funded) forms a vital part of his week, both for him and for myself as one of his carers. Please do not change this service provision.
