The V.I. Human Services Department is reportedly working with the Sea View Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility on St. Thomas as it prepares to shut down on Jan. 30, according to a statement Friday from the department.

Currently, there are six residents — a combination of senior citizens and adults with severe disabilities — at the facility. The Department of Human Services, in conjunction with family members where applicable, has initiated plans to transition these residents to other care facilities, such as the Queen Louise and the Herbert Grigg Homes for the Aged.
