Unions Against Closure of Nursing Home in Brisbane Northside

The Eventide Nursing Home, a Brisbane north-side aged care facility that was established in October 1946 and originally had a population of 768 residents, is likely to be shut down.

With this announcement, a spark of antagonism has been raised in the union members. They are strictly against this closure. If this aged care facility gets shut, then around 80 elderly residents have to suffer. They have to be relocated to other regions.

It has been recently announced by the Metro North Hospital and Health Board Chairman Paul Alexander that very soon Bramble House and Flinders House at the Eventide site would gradually be closed. By December, they are looking forward to relocate 20 residents to other areas.

He added, "Residential aged care is more appropriately managed by private and non-government services that specialize in providing this type of care".

But is it fair that while providing a better healthcare to the community via hospitals and in other forms of outpatient care, just to ignore the life of elders who are trying to live out a peaceful life in these care centers?

Dr. Alexander said that though in Australia residential aged care is not managed by hospital services, even then they would make sure that elder residents who are facing quite complicated problems are looked after by them. They will make sure that all kinds of health care is provided to them.
