60 families left in limbo » Laois
SIXTY families with children who have special needs, some with high dependency issues, have been left in limbo with the closure, without notice, of the adult respite service in Fountain View, Abbeyleix.
No notice was given to families by the HSE funded Muiriosa Foundation, which runs the centre.
“We got no letter, only told last weekend,” said Ms Walsh. Last Sunday week, as Clare left, the adult respite centre’s beds were already being dismantled.
Clare had been attending the adult respite centre a few times a year for over ten years.
She benefited from time out of the house with her friends and visits to the cinema among other activities.
