TWO Ballymoney care homes, owned by struggling health care giant Four Seasons Health Care (FSHC), have been sold on as going concerns.

All staff at the Court and Model care homes will have “the opportunity to transfer across to the new operator” with “continuity of care for residents” being a priority, a spokesperson for FSHC has said.

FSHC, who were put into administration back in April 2019, is currently being restructured.
