Sinn Féins Caoimhe Archibald has expressed concern at the announcement that the Four Seasons Care Home in Garvagh is one of seven to be closed in coming months.

Ms Archibald said, “The announcement of the intention to close Four Seasons in Garvagh has undoubtedly caused great upset to the residents, their families and also to the staff, who are all facing much uncertainty.”

“Residents and their families will require suitable support to identify alternatives and have a relatively short time in which to do so, perhaps as early as the end of February.

“The unexpected nature of the announcement has obviously angered staff also, who feel let down by the lack of communication prior to this morning. .

“The closures of these homes again highlights the need for an overhaul of care provision within the sector, the companies’ management highlighted problems of being able to recruit and retain trained staff, this needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency.”
