Local Councillor Charlie O’Connor says he has responded to calls from the local area and sought an update from the HSE on the Building Programme of the new Community Nursing Home facility at Tymon North in Tallaght.
He raised the matter at the monthly meeting of the Regional Health Forum Dublin Mid-Leinster held in Naas and was told by HSE Management that the Building Programme of the new 100 bed unit at Tymon North is “currently on schedule.”
The expectation is that the “keys” are to be handed over in November 2018. There will then be an estimated 3 months of outfitting the unit for occupation.
The Manager of Services for Older Persons visited two local residents who had concerns; the first about truck parking, which was rectified quickly and the second about dust, which will be kept to a minimum by the contractors cleaning the road daily.
Enable Ireland also had concerns regarding parking and the Manger is working with that Organisation on this matter.
The new 100 bed unit at Tymon North will significantly enhance the level of services available to older people who need long term care in South Dublin and will be a purpose built state of the art facility.
According to Charlie O’Connor, this is a vital project for the Tallaght region and he continues to stress to HSE Management the importance of keeping the local community in Tymon North and the surrounding area fully updated on developments.
He added that he also welcomed the commitment of the HSE to deal with any local concerns that are raised.
