Description: "Closure of Dementia Unit Blamed on Staff Shortage" describes the closure of the dementia unit attached to Long Jetty Healthcare Centre. Staff and patients of the unit will relocate as the unit which has been opened since 1991, will close. Closure came as a surprise to former CEO of Gosford Hospital, Neville Boyce, who praised the previous success of the unit. "No Further need for Terilbah Centre", Central Coast GP Division chairman Phil Godden claims the closure of the unit could be due to several other dementia facilities in the area, as well as majority of nursing homes having their own dementia unit. Godden is sad to see the closure of the unit after 20 years of caring for people with dementia.
