It was a real pleasure for Dan to meet and chat with residents over tea at Gressland Court in Kesgrave. Gressland Court is an assisted living home which provides support and care for frail older people who might need help with tasks such as bathing or dressing.

They will have an even more important role to fulfil in delivering the type of community-focussed care that will be needed if we are to meet the challenge of properly looking after our growing older population in Suffolk.
