The relatives of the Rosalie Care Home residents have recently received redacted copies of their loved ones’ care plans.
The Herald understands the families and relatives of the Castlerea unit’s remaining residents received the documents from the HSE in the last number of days.
The campaign to save the unit from closure has attracted widespread public support, with thousands of people signing a petition to retain it. Campaigners have repeatedly asked what facilities will be put in place to care for residents if they are moved to other locations. Trade unions also want clarification on the future of the unit.
Speaking to the Roscommon Herald, Deputy Eugene Murphy said it appeared likely that his private member’s bill opposing the closure of the Rosalie Unit would be heard in the week before the Dáil’s summer recess.
