Ulster Unionist MLA Rosemary Barton has said it is another blow to the elderly following the announcement that Drumclay Care Home in Enniskillen is to close.
Mrs Barton said:
“At a time when options for living in the community are reducing for the elderly it is sad that we learn Drumclay Care Home in Enniskillen is to close before the end of the year.
“Drumclay Care Home has provided a good caring home for many residents during the past decades.
“There will be an immediate challenge for families and the Western Trust to have the current residents of Drumclay relocated as the number of places currently available in local care homes is unlikely to meet demand in the short-term. I will be seeking a meeting with the management of the Care Home and the Western Trust to address these issues.
“It is time for an overall review of domiciliary and care home requirements within the area, as it is obvious that services cannot meet demands.”
