"I have been in contact with Model Nursing Home and discussed the announcement by the RQIA and a notice to force its closure.

This is an alarming and distressful situation for the residents , staff and families. I have for the past two days been in contact with RQIA and have asked to meet with them to establish a process where the excellent care Home would not have to close.

The issues around closure are to do with financial structure of the business which is unique and not the level of care of standard of the home which is excellent.

If this home were to close it would reduce a rural service significantly in Ballymoney and force families and residents to move away. There is an alternative course of action that must be found."
