Elderly man in dire need of housing help


Share post:

WHILE 74-YEAR-OLD Lionel Inniss continues to live and sleep in the ruins of what used to be his house, his concerned neighbours are calling for some assistance getting him removed and provided medical care.

Two female neighbours told the DAILY NATION yesterday was a full week that the house, which was in a dilapidated condition, had crumbled. Luckily, Inniss, who is sick, was at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at that time.

They said upon his release from the hospital, he had to return to the piles of rotted board, galvanised sheets and a torn tarpaulin in Fustic Village, St Lucy.

Inniss, who worked as a gardener all his life, said when assistance was offered before, he was hoping to get a home of his own. He is now ready to go to the Geriatric Hospital and wanted Government to place him in care. (LK)
