Councillor Urging Islanders To Fill In Elder Care Survey
The councillor responsible for providing care for elderly people in Scilly is urging all islanders to give their views on the service.
Cllr Fran Grottick, who chairs the Council’s Community Services committee, says the questionnaire has been sent to every household on the islands and needs to be filled in by the end of the week.
And she wants to hear from everyone – not just older members of the community.
Fran says: “Sadly, we all grow older but how we age and the facilities available to us can make a real difference to our lives, and those of our families and friends.
“So please don’t throw the questionnaire in the bin, even if you think it is of little relevance to you now.”
Cllr Grottick added that all authorities are facing challenging financial times and the views of islanders will help direct how money can be used in the best way.
Extra copies of the questionnaire are available at the Town Hall.
