“We Deserve Better”

Our older people want support to stay independent and enjoy life. When the time comes, they want good quality care they can rely on

Derbyshire Labour is determined to listen to what older people want. At a public meeting last November, older people from across Derbyshire met Labour councillors and talked about their concerns.

Their worries were:

>that the DCC home help service is being sidelined and people are being pushed into the private sector for care at home.

>there is a threat to close most of the DCC residential homes and move to ‘extra-care’, where people have self-contained flats.

Derbyshire Labour believes people will always need good quality residential care. We will invest in a programme to refurbish and modernise our council-run homes, so people have a choice.
