SAVE OUR HOME! Your community needs you!
Arthur Clark Care Home, Caversham is under threat of closure
Families, neighbours and friends of the residents of the Arthur Clark Care home in Caversham, Reading have taken action against a threat by Reading Borough Council to close the home. An online petition has been set up at http://chn.ge/YK83Bd and we are urging people to get involved and sign up to save many elderly and vulnerable pensioners from having to move out of their dearly loved home. We are simply asking for the local community and businesses of Reading (and beyond) to rally behind this wonderful home and its residents in a show of strength on behalf of those who are unable to defend their rights for themselves. Leaflets will be distributed and concerns can also be voiced through the online consultation questionnaire on the council’s website http://www.reading.gov.uk/council/Consultations/improving-residential-services-arthur-clark-care-h/
Please help us to save the residents (many of whom have lived in the local area all their lives) from a period of highly distressing upheaval, while unnecessary refurbishment takes place, with no promise of return. This amazing facility with such high standards of care could then be lost for all future generations.
“The care of our elderly is of outmost importance and the closure of yet another care home is awful. One day we will all be old and need a safe place and this home is wonderful.” Beverley Paterson, Berkshire (via online petition).
Please sign our petition http://chn.ge/YK83Bd and forward on to friends and relatives to spread the word.
Time is short and we need all signatures to be delivered to the Arthur Clark Home, 1 Albert Road, RG4 7AN no later than 4/6/13 please.
