Lift repaired after significant disruption to residents

Wednesday 11 January 2023


The States have confirmed that the broken lift at St. John's Residential Home has been repaired after causing disruption for residents who are “unable to manage the home’s stairs”.

An HSC spokesperson said that issues with the lift began in November and a replacement part was required.

That part arrived in December and the lift is now operational again. 

The spokesperson also confirmed that while the lift was unavailable “adjustments to living arrangements were made for residents unable to manage the home’s stairs”.

These issues first emerged during a States’ question time in November when Deputy Lyndon Trott queried if Health & Social Care were aware of “significant issues” at the home because of the broken lift.

Just a few weeks later the States announced it would step in to save the care home from closure and guarantee care to its residents. 

The care home was officially taken over on January 1 2023. HSC say it is too early to say how much the nationalisation and management of the home will cost the taxpayer.
