David at the 2010 Reunion
Here is an update on David Baker on 8th April 2018.


At the beginning of March David's family were notified that the nursing home he had been in since leaving hospital on October 9th 2017 was to be closed down in early April.  The family was very disappointed as they had been extremely happy with his care. 

Health-wise he has improved. He has gained weight; his diabetes has settled down a little; and his walking (assisted by a zimmer and one nurse) is 100% better than when he left hospital.  As for his mind, it varies from visit to visit and his dementia is obviously not improving.  Many people have visited him in the care home, and the family is very pleased.

After an extremely worrying three weeks for the family and many phone calls and visits, they are delighted that David is moving tomorrow (9th April) in to The Avenue Nursing Home, Spinney Hill, Northampton NN3 6BA.  Visitors are always welcome at the home and that applies to former pupils who would like to visit him.
