Minister Jim Daly agrees to meeting on future of Rosalie Unit in Castlerea

A meeting has been arranged with the Minister for Mental Health Jim Daly in relation to the future of the Rosalie unit in Castlerea.

Roscommon Senator Maura Hopkins says Minister Daly has confirmed that he will hold a meeting on Wed 24th January involving HSE management, Oireachtas public representatives for the area and family representatives.

Senator Hopkins had requested the meeting with the Minister to discuss concerns about the long-term future of the Rosalie unit at Aras Naomh Chaolain in Castlerea, after it emerged that there have been no new admissions to the unit for almost a year and a half.

The unit accommodates a number of elderly people with alzheimers, dementia and other mental health issues.
