190606 | Edward Hain was in receipt of subsidies whereas Hayle Day Care Centre is no longer subsidised

The adult day care package at Edward Hain was also discussed at the Network Meeting and concerns were expressed that it is not delivering the remit it was set up for ie providing interim care for elderly people coming out of hospital before returning home but actually acting as a Day Care Centre for St Ives residents. He felt that there was inequality especially as Edward Hain was in receipt of subsidies whereas Hayle Day Care Centre is no longer subsidised. It was confirmed that the St Ives Day Care Centre had closed and that Hayle Day Centre was now providing a full service for St Ives based users, including travel.
