A group of women in their 80s and 90s, most of them living with dementia, face being moved out of the care home that's been their home for years.

The charity which runs the home, in Manchester, is giving residents and their families nine weeks to make alternative arrangements before it closes.

The home has been funded for many years by members of the UK-Polish community, providing support for elderly, sick or disabled people of Polish heritage who live in the UK.

Their carers speak Polish to residents and take them to mass every day.
