Dan regularly writes about how the single biggest challenge facing Suffolk is properly caring for our growing older population. Our care homes have a vital role to play in meeting this challenge and Dan was recently delighted to visit Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home in Saxtead to present staff with the Gold Standards Framework Care Homes Accreditation Award, which recognises the achievement of high quality care for people nearing the final years of life. The award, which is open to all 20,724 care homes in Britain has only been achieved by 288 to date.
