Government to open care residential care home for elderly

Cabinet decided yesterday to establish a residential home for the elderly following the submission of a paper on the subject by the Ministry of Health and Family.

Ministers noted an increasing number of elderly people being transferred to the Guraidhoo Special Care Centre, which had insufficient accommodation available to new charges. The needs of elderly people being committed to such facilities varied considerably, cabinet noted.

The care home would be established under a Public-Private Partnership scheme, cabinet decided.

  1. good idea in principle but let us wait and see how it works.
    Hope that when they build this place they make the building and the environment suitable for the elderly. Also take into account the kind of care they will need, and put in all the right equipment before they move the elderly in. Let' pray that it will not turn into another guraidhoo where the staff have no idea of how to look after people, and are a bunch of idiots.
