The six-member sub-committee of the Golden Age Home Board has completed its report regarding allegations of mistreatment and sub-standard living conditions and care of residents of the home.
The sub-committee led by its Chairman Rion Hall and Professor Denise Eldemire Shearer of the Board of Supervision, earlier this week met during an extra-ordinary meeting to consider the allegations and were requested to provide a report of their findings to the Minister with responsibility for Local Government, Robert Montague, today.
The report of the sub-committee has made far-reaching recommendations towards remedial actions that should positively affect the strengthening of the home’s management, quality of care, internal supervision and oversight where necessary.
Minister Montague who directed that an extra-ordinary meeting of the Board be held in light of a newspaper story on Sunday, April 3, 2011, will review the report and make an announcement.
