Among the the topics anticipated to be lifted is the foreseeable future use of Strathendrick Treatment Residence in Balfron, which has been intently adopted by locals in the spot in current years.
Balfron Community Council claimed very last month that its closure had been confirmed at an open discussion board for the to start with time, with the purpose given getting that the services and providers made available there were not appropriate for the model of care now deemed essential for all those who call for the total assortment of well being and social treatment solutions readily available through durations of respite.
While the 12-mattress residence was typically utilised latterly as a respite centre, it had not initially been meant for that intent and at a single position had just one entire time resident.
The treatment home very first confronted the axe 3 yrs back to aid the funding of Stirling Care Village but the closure was averted when councillors for the area, together with ward councillor Alastair Berrill, persuaded Stirling Council of the want for a regional care hub, furnishing brief-time period respite treatment and intermediate treatment.
The integrated joint board later became the overall body liable for the assistance at the household, inspite of Stirling Council possessing the building.
Past summer months Councillor Berrill sought assurances just after there appeared to be no true spending budget for the household. Most current budget figures display that, though the selected finances had been set at just £2000 pending any determination on its use, the projected yearly expenditure for the household was £478,000.

In December 2019 social care bosses from the HSCP denied any imminent options to halt providers for the elderly at the rural treatment household and reported no determination experienced been taken. The past month council social treatment supervisors said they ended up looking into the chance of working with Strathendrick for other types of treatment, which includes for little ones, and that the IJB was looking at whether it could be employed for grownups with disabilities.
An HSCP spokesperson claimed this week: “We are at present examining the way treatment and assistance is shipped in the south-west Stirling space. This contains respite care, self-directed help, support to unpaid carers and residential and nursing treatment.
“Our aim is to supply end result-targeted contemporary care and aid to much more folks in their very own residences. Strathendrick will be viewed as inside of this function, along with all of our solutions, focusing on social treatment as a priority.
“We will continue to engage with communities in this spot through this system, and a remaining report on the session will be regarded as right before a determination is created on the long run model of care.”
