The tory run Notts County Council have plans to close St Michael's View Care Home, Retford, Notts. This will see local people, including my mum, turfed out of their homes and leave the area with no local authority provision for elderly care in Retford.
Back in 2015, NCC took the decision to close all its remaining care and support services as they stated the buildings are not fit for the service they wish to provide and that they did not have the funds to update them, even though each resident pays £750 per week for care. They stated at the time that a new independent living provision would be provided by December 2016, however planning permission has yet to be submitted resulting in no new provison. They have now stated that the care home will close in March 2019 leaving residents and families having to find alternative care elsewhere in the country; residents will be displaced and families divided. The only option for residents will be to move to private care which costs on average £1200 per week.
I call on Nottinghamshire County Council to put Bassetlaw first and keep our care home open
