Care for profit

I'VE been lucky enough to have had contact with Woodland View NHS Nursing Home for the last five years.

They cared for my father and my mother is a resident. It cares for 60 residents with dementia/Alzheimers disease. The proposed closure in 2012 means all this type of care in Sheffield will be provided in the private sector (care for profit).
