Sutton South Ward has one of the oldest age profiles of any Ward in Sutton. The many care homes and blocks of sheltered accommodation in the Ward partly explain why we have a more elderly population, but there are also many elderly people living in their own homes. We want to enable people to live in their homes for as long as they can, which is why Sutton Council is one of the only London Councils to fund Admiral nurses. These are specialist nurses trained assisting those with dementia, working closely with families and carers to help people to live at home. We are proud to be members of a Council that provides such help, despite the severe financial squeeze the Council is facing, as an expression of our Liberal Democrat values.
