Assisted Living Leeds

Assisted.Living.2015.jpg

Last Friday I opened the new Assisted Living in Leeds Centre at Clarence Dock with Councillor Adam Ogilvie.

This is a great partnership between the city council, local GPs, the community health trust and the city's voluntary organisations to bring together in one place a lot of the services that older people need in order to live independently in their own homes. It includes a vast store of all types of equipment – beds, chairs, commodes and hoists - and it will also be home to the Leeds Telecare Service which keeps an eye on people with alarm buttons and other specialised equipment to help them to live at home.

We know that we have a growing elderly population who will need this kind of support. First it will be our Mums and Dads and then it will be our turn. So this is a service for everyone and it's great to see how the city is thinking ahead in this way. And above all, as ever, I was so impressed by the enthusiasm, commitment and dedication of all the staff involved.

Well done.
