Maria Mallaband has announced St Martin’s Care Home in Liverpool is to close due to challenging market conditions.
St Martin’s, which is currently rated Good by the CQC, provides care and accommodation for up to 42 people, including those living with dementia.
A spokesperson for Maria Mallaband said: “It is with deep regret that we have taken the difficult decision to not continue to provide a care service at St Martin’s Care Home.
“As we all know both commissioners and providers of social care face significant challenges at present.
“We have, unfortunately, reached a stage at St Martin’s where we are unable to continue because of current market challenges, despite the best efforts of the staff team.
“We understand that residents and relatives will be concerned and worried by this decision.
“We are working closely with the local commissioners and would like to assure people that we will do our best to provide as much assistance as possible to help with finding alternative placements.”
The news came after Shaw healthcare announced in August it was having to close its recently opened Brushwood and Millvina House care homes in Liverpool following “significant and sustainable losses”.
Liverpool City Council has subsequently announced the homes would remain open until the spring after inviting new bids to run the homes.
