Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan-Monaghan Niamh Smyth has called on the government to provide consistency for the residents of Cardus House, Drumconrath, County Meath as they face being moved from current accommodation

Deputy Smyth commented, “I understand there are doubts for the future of the residential care places in Cardus House in Drumconrath. For many residents they call Cardus home and have been living in this centre for decades.

“Residents and their families are very concerned about a potential move. It will cause much disruption and fear. Having spoken to families and those close to the facility one of the important factors in long term care is consistency and familiar surroundings.

“I am calling on the Minister for Health to take a second look at decisions being made. We must put the best interests of residents first,” concluded Deputy Smyth.
