THE council has said it's "willing to find a solution," to reunite a 92-year-old couple who are in different care homes.

Charles McGuigan and his wife Jean were forced to move out of their house in Castlemilk in December due to ill health.

Charles was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in December and is now being cared for in the city's Chester Park, in Kinning Park, which provides rehabiliative care.

His wife of 30 years, Jean, who has dementia, is in Davislea care home, three miles away in Govan.

The couple are said to have been "inconsolable" after being separated.

Retired shop worker Jean and Charles, a former sheet metal worker, married in 1988.

The council are now understood to be willing to look at the option of moving Charles into Davislea.

A spokesman for Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership said: “We cannot comment on an individual case.

“The care needs of vulnerable individuals are always carefully assessed to ensure those needs are being met in an appropriate manner.

“We always seek to ensure couples are accommodated together where ever that is possible and appropriate.”
