Antrim Borough Council has opened a petition in support of residential care homes.
Mayor of Antrim, Councillor Roderick Swann said: “Antrim Borough Council, in listening to the voices of concern in respect of proposed changes in the residential care home sector have agreed to facilitate a Petition on behalf of concerned citizens. The petition will then be sent to senior management in the Health sector.”
He added: “Through the petition we are asking that, in managing change and developing improved services for the future, existing facilities such as Rosedale Residential Care Home should be retained until such time as an accessible, modern replacement is available within the Borough of Antrim for residents, clients and the community.”
The Petition is available to sign at Antrim Civic Centre, Antrim Forum, Allen Park, Antrim Castle Gardens and The Old Courthouse Information Centre until Saturday, November 30.
