Stewart Memorial House in Bangor set to close

Families of residents at a Bangor care home have been told it is to close and their relatives moved to alternative accommodation in the new year.

Stewart Memorial House houses about 30 people.

However, families have been informed it does not have the money it needs to stay open.

In a statement, the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust said it has been told by the board of trustees of the home's forthcoming closure.

The trust said it would work closely with the trustees, the residents affected and their families, to ensure appropriate alternative placements are identified.
