Hazelwood care Home

Derbyshire County Council are proposing to close Hazelwood Home for Older People due to the rising cost of repairs. Over a 12-week consultation period people who would be affected by the closure will get the chance to say what they think about the proposal.

Due to ‘estimation’ for cost of work, Derbyshire County Council are now considering closing the home where there are currently 25 elderly residents. These residents include my 97 year old grandma and family members of friends in Ilkeston. Hazlewood is the only local authority owned care home left in Ilkeston & provides a vital service for the elderly in and surrounding this area. Having local authority owned care homes provides support to those elderly who may not be able to support a private care home bill – just as the NHS does for us.

If you believe that this is a vital service then please add your name to this petition and take a stand.
