Move elderly from Adina Donovon Home to old Peebles Hospital — Fraser

Old Peebles Hospital is adjacent to the Adina Donovan Home for the Elderly on Main Street.

Chairman of Progressives United, Julian Fraser, is lobbying for operations at the Adina Donovan Home for the Elderly on Main Street, Road Town to be relocated.

Fraser, however, is not proposing for them to be uprooted very far from where they are now. He just wants them moved next door.

“The seniors at Adina Donovan Home should be moved into the old wing of the hospital. That’s a no-brainer,” Fraser said.

He continued: “I had the opportunity this week to visit a 95-year-old resident of Adina Donovan Home celebrating his birthday and I am now more convinced that I was right. It is something that has to happen.”

Fraser, who was speaking at a Progressives United rally in Huntums Ghut on Saturday, did not outline the reasons for the relocation to Old Peebles Hospital.

    I don’t know what other uses they have planned for the old hospital but using it as a home for the elderly sounds like an interesting idea.

    Hardly a home. Would require a lot of money to convert. Why not continue to build on the site at Spooners Hill, which has already had a million or mor spent on it.

    No brainer suggestion by the Hon Julian “Liberator” Fraser (D-3), RA. We just need an OpLan to make it happen. Piece of low hanging fruit for the next government.

    you can put them anywhere you want but do not seperate them they are a tight knitted family living hapoily together if the old hospital is more spacious them i agree but sometimes they are outside on the porch breathing the fresh air and watching the view so i hope they can get all of that at the new location– if they are going to be moved.

      Didn’t someone in a wheel chair fell and died off of that same porch, unattended? I understand your comment but if safety is not in place, it is not good.

      • island man says:

        im not sure ok but then again someone could have see this passing by the road if they are locked up in the old hospital far worse can happen. Whenever i passby where they are right now i do tell them good day (morning) and they would be outside there chatting im not sure how no one saw when the wheelchair person fell. All im saying do not keep them as prisioners or separate them.

    They all Do not have to move. What needs to be done as a lot of elderly are being left in the hospital is to fit the old hospital to house those that need long term care and leave the current location for more independent residents. Where there are no vision the people perish and that we are doing. Only fraser seems to be doing some thinking. If we do not have the money to build a home now let’s come with another plan. Lord have mercy on us. Why must those we say we love must continue to suffer.
