Care home residents ‘like prisoners’, says Derek

Elderly people have become like prisoners at care facilities on St Helena, Councillor Derek Thomas declared at the inaugural meeting of the island’s new Legislative Council.

He said they were trapped at the Community Care Home and other facilities because no transport was made provided to take them on trips – even though vehicles were available.

Other speakers also urged that the needs of elderly and vulnerable people on St Helena must be a top priority for the new government.

Councillor Christine Scipio o’Dean spoke on the importance of good education as a means to give Saints the key to their own destiny.

And two councillors praised the St Helena team at the Island Games in Bermuda for winning a gold and two silver medals.
