Please see below an update on Boniface House care home
10 November 2023
Work to relocate residents of Boniface House care home to more comfortable accommodation has been successfully completed this week. The move to alternative accommodation means the residents can continue to receive quality care in an environment that will better meet their needs.
Members may recall the announcement regarding the closure of Boniface House following public consultation.
The decision was made by Cabinet due to the care home being significantly under-occupied. The outdated design of the care home also meant it was no longer able to provide facilities to meet the needs of people who require residential care.
Earlier this week we issued a statement to counter false information in circulation suggesting that the building is set to accommodate asylum seekers - which is not true. The Council is still in the process of considering the future use of this building and will provide an update when this decision has been made. To be clear, there is no agreed plan in place for the use of this building.
I would like to extend a huge thank you to all the staff at Boniface, as well as to the residents and their relatives.
