Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire welcomed the Council’s U-turn on its decision to implement day care charges for local residents.
Commenting Jo said:
“I was very pleased to hear the Council decided to reverse the plan to charge for day care at their meeting last night.”
“This is an essential service for the elderly and vulnerable in our community. If withdrawn many would end up isolated or have their health problems worsen.”
“I also hope lessons have been learnt on the importance of consultation and communication for future changes to vital services.”
“I dropped by to meet local residents who use day care services at the Anand Bhavan Care Centre today. It was excellent to meet both them and the staff and see what a positive effect day care can have in people’s lives.
