Fears for 30 residents as Tywyn care home fails

THE FUTURE of 30 elderly residents and 21 staff hangs in the balance after a Tywyn nursing home went into administration this week.

The privately-run Bay Nursing Home, owned by Regency Homes, will now be administrated by a Manchester company.

The news comes months after an investigation was launched by health chiefs and social services after concerns were raised that staff at the Bay had been leaving because wages had not been paid.

There are now worries about where the residents will be cared for in the future, if a new owner is not found for the home.

Chairman of Tywyn Council, Richard Vaughan, said the news was very sad for the area.

He said: “The Bay has been housing elderly people for years. I don’t know if it will shut down, but if it does, where will people go? I hope someone else will be able to take it over but, if not, it’s very worrying that beds for elderly people will be lost in the area, and elderly people may have to travel out of the area for care. That is my biggest worry.
