Resident's mother speaks out over care home closure

The Western Health Trust is proposing to close all its residential care homes, the BBC has learned.

It follows similar moves by the Northern and Southern health trusts, which announced last week they have decided to close the homes they run.

Josie McCann's mother is 99 and lives in Thackeray Place care home, Strabane.

Ms McCann said it was her mum's home and believes that if she was moved from there, "it would kill her."
