Three deaths in Conway House

May 19th 2009

Conway House, where three men died
Three homeless men died recently from alcohol- and drug-related problems in Conway House, one of Camden's largest hostels, sparking concerns among residents and staff over the lack of resources for people with drug addictions. Joao Rodriguez (33), John Andain (55), who had been living in the hostel for a year, and Henry Bodarenko (52) were all reliant on long-term accommodation and had high support needs. "These tragedies have been very distressing for people who live at the hostel," a spokesperson for the hostel owners said. Redevelopment plans have been proposed to expand Conway House further and provide residents with individual bedrooms, a refurbished refectory and new kitchens, but residents are calling for improved resources to help people with long-term addiction problems and to assist the staff in facing their daily challenges. The charity had been previously praised for its work and awarded three green lights by an independent inspector.
