January 13th the date for opening of Seaview Respite Centre in Mountcharles

It is now expected that the Seaview House Respite Centre in Mountcharles in County Donegal will open on January 13th.

The centre provides residential respite services for families in the South Donegal area.

RehabCare, which has been awarded the contract to operate the centre, had said it would open ‘in the coming weeks’, without any exact date having been given.

But after a public meeting in the Abbey Hotel in Donegal Town this week attended by almost 150 people, it’s now expected the centre will be open from January 13th, from Monday evenings to Saturday mornings.

Mary Gorman, chairperson of the Donegal Parents and Friends Association, says she hopes funding will eventually be made available for the centre to open seven days.

She says the attendance at this week’s public meeting was a real boost.
