A coroner has concluded that a woman who lived at a Sandbach residential home died as a result of the injuries she sustained when she fell in her room.
Joan Rosemary Burke, (85), was a resident of Park House residential care home on Congleton Road.
Mrs Burke moved into the home in February 2019, following a stroke the previous year that left her with mobility issues on her left side, an inquest in Crewe heard on Thursday.
She needed to use a Zimmer frame following the stroke, which resulted in her left side being weaker.
