Martin urges administrators to not keep nursing home residents and staff in dark

Alliance Lisburn Councillor Stephen Martin has expressed serious concerns following news the company that owns Kingsway Private Nursing Home in the city has gone into administration.

Deputy Mayor Alderman Martin said the Seymour Hill home going into administration has left many residents and staff in limbo, and encouraged the administrators to proceed quickly in their attempts to sell the business.

“The residents and staff are now unsure of what lies ahead through no fault of their own, so the administrators owe them a duty of care to make clear quickly and plainly where things stand,” he said.

“I have written to the administrators to stress in the strongest possible terms the impact this uncertainty will likely have on residents and their families. Those now in charge must do their upmost to protect those they have in their care and who make up some of the most vulnerable people in our community.

“I will be keeping a close eye on developments over the next few weeks and will be making representations to all the relevant bodies involved.”
