Dr Dan visited the Mills Meadow care home in Framlingham. Mills Meadow provides residential and day care to older people, including some dementia patients, from the Framlingham area.
Ensuring adequate care for older people remains one of Dr Dan’s top priorities as an MP. Suffolk faces a crisis in care provision unless solutions to the problems of an ageing population are put in place in the next few years.
