Please help if you can. My Nan went into The Spinney Care Home in Brimington in 2019. All her life until recent years she was a very independent, active person who lived safely on her own. Unfortunately there came a time when this was no longer the case, and my Nan moved into The Spinney. 

The staff there are so welcoming and caring, they have got to know Nan and her personality. The environment is comfortable, homely and welcoming. The staff put on regular activities for residents to enjoy, and encourage social interaction. Nan, despite her illness, has made some friends in the other residents and this has no doubt helped her to settle in as well as possible. As a family, it is good to know she is safe and settled there.

When we heard the news that the Spinney, amongst other local care homes, was likely going to be closed we were very upset. Not just for the residents, who will likely need to be placed elsewhere, breaking up friendships and social bonds, but also for the dedicated staff who work there. 

Please consider signing my petition to try and get the Council's to at least stop and consider public opinion before making their decision next week. This is my Nan (and other vulnerable residents') home. Please help us to try and keep it open. 

Thanks for reading.
