WW2 Hero ‘dismissed’ by thoughtless Sefton Council closure plans at Brookdale Centre February 1st, 2015 Tom Latest News Latest Uncategorized Shares Comments The following forms just one example of how outrageous council closure plans can shatter the lives of our most vulnerable citizens. Brookdale Resource Centre resident, Albert Hooley, is 91 years old. He was awarded Citizen of Honour of the City of Liverpool as a World War 2 veteran. Albert served in the Royal Navy as a deep sea diver unwinding ropes attached to mines that had caught in the propellers of the destroyers. He served aboard HMS Tartar. Albert has Alzheimer’s and mixed dementia and attends Brookdale 5 days a week where he is treated with kindness, dignity and the respect he truly deserves. Sefton Council’s ill-considered and cruel proposals to close down the Brookdale Centre directly affect heroes like Albert, who deserve much better than this. Brookdale has, it seems, been left as a well-kept secret by Sefton Council after campaigners recently discovered that various dementia and Alzheimer’s groups had never even ‘heard’ of this specialist and centrally located facility. Naturally, if people have never heard of the place they cannot be expected to utilise its specialist and exclusive help.
