However Jenkin Lodge may continue to meet the needs of existing tenants over the age of 65. By agreement with the person, their relatives and carers, Care Managers and Purchasers of Services, the person may be able to remain in the care home until such time as a move to more appropriate services is required by them, agreed with the person and their stakeholders.
