Dr Dan pays visit to Baylham Care Home

Dr Dan joins residents at Baylham Care Home on Christmas DayDr Dan was delighted to visit Baylham Care Home and to meet with Prema Fairburn-Dorai and Adrian Fairburn to discuss the importance of better supporting our older people and those with long-term medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes and arthritis in Suffolk. Baylham is an innovative high level care home which provides a range of services to its residents, including respite care, long term nursing, rehabilitation and physiotherapy, along with Dementia and holistic End of Life care. Locally sourced fresh home cooked food is also provided to residents as part of their individually tailored care packages at both the Baylham and Barham Care Centres.

Dan discussed the future of the Care Home’s relationship with local hospitals, along with the importance of providing better care in the community for the people of Suffolk.

It is for this reason that we need to see a more integrated health and social care service that is grounded in local communities within Suffolk, to provide high quality elderly and end of life care, and the Baylham Care Centre stands as an outstanding model of how to provide this integrated care.

Offensive Weapons Bill: Ipswich-London Rail Fares (15 Oct 2018)

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
