Reayrt ny Baie Resource Centre was opened in 1992 as a replacement for the Albert Terrace Residential Home. It does not meet current regulatory standards and is now no longer fit for purpose due to room size and bathroom provision, currently six shared between 45 residents. In addition, the day service provided at Reayrt ny Baie in the former dining room is based in an inappropriate environment. The proposed Summer Hill View facility would meet current standards under the Regulation of Care Act 2013.
“This project is a significant and important investment by Government in a vital facility. It will ensure that we have buildings that are fit for purpose, which our older generations deserve, both now and into the future. Delivering carefully and sympathetically designed buildings such as this does make a significant difference to the quality of life for residents, and day service clients, whilst also ensuring our care and support teams are able to deliver care in an environment that has been designed around the changing needs of older people."
“Our facilities provide a service to some of the most vulnerable members of our community and therefore it is vital that we invest in modern buildings.”
