The Northern Health and Social Care Trust has launched a public consultation to decide the future of statutory residential care for older people.

The Health and Social Care Board recently approved the Trust’s proposals for local consultation in relation to the future of statutory residential homes in the Northern Trust area.

It is proposed to continue providing residential care at Lisgarel in Larne, Joymount in Carrickfergus and Rathcoole’s Clonmore home and to resume permanent admissions. sThe consultation will run until October 2.

Una Cunning, director of community care at the Northern Trust, said: “As such, these proposals do not present any change for current permanent and long term temporary residents.

Consultation documents are available on the Trust website: www.northerntrust.hscni.net/ or by ringing 028 2766 1377.
