Island could need 20 new nursing homes

Ageing population discussed at Policy Review Committee

The Chief Minister has suggested the Island could need as many as twenty new nursing homes in the next twenty years.

An ageing Manx population was a key theme of discussions on Monday (26th March), as the Economic Policy Review Committee took oral evidence from representatives of government in the Legislative Council Chamber.

Howard Quayle referenced his time spent as Health Minister, when it was predicted nine new care homes could be required to satisfy growing demand.

But now Mr Quayle believes that number could in fact be far higher.
