Residents of Holmleigh Nursing Home (and their relatives) have been told that he home is to close.
The reason given is that there are structural problems with the building.
This all seems to be happening very quickly and is clearly going to be very disruptive for the elderly and in some cases very frail people living there.
(It also seems to be odd given that I saw renovation work going on there myself not that long ago)
Holmleigh is a private home but some of the residents' fees are paid by Liverpool City Council.
We've contacted the Council to find out what is going on and what is in place to help residents find somewhere else to live in what sounds like a rather short period of time.
This is not the first problem for Holmleigh. It had a couple of poor inspection reports not that long ago and I was actually invited in by a resident to see for myself what some of the problems were.
