I had the pleasure to visit the Royal Court warden controlled flats at Bickerton drive gwersyllt yesterday. It was the official opening by the Mayor Cllr George James of the building following the refurbishment. i was really impressed to see how the accommodation had changed and how some flats have been converted into accommodation for rest bite care and people coming out of hospital as a transitional care facility before going home.
I would like express my thanks to all the officers who worked so hard to make this a resource that the local authority and the health people can use for the benefit of our communities.
following that event i attended, a workshop where councillors were agreeing our priorities for the next year and providing care for older people in their homes was one that we have agreed for a few years however having visited Royal Court I felt that it should state that our priority should be amended to say PROVIDING CARE FOR OLDER PEOPLE IN A HOME OF THEIR CHOICE.
