British actor-filmmaker Richard Attenborough, who is battling ill health, has been moved into a care home here.

The 89-year-old is wheelchair-bound after a 2008 fall, and in 2012, he sold off the $18.4 million home he shared here with his wife Sheila Sim after deciding it was not "practical" to keep the mansion.

Sim was moved to a care home after she diagnosed with senile dementia, and now Attenborough has joined her in the facility, reports

"The family home has been sold and he has been at a care home with his wife since then," their son Michael told Britain's Sunday Mirror.
