Sanctuary Care has announced that is to close a Hull care home currently rated ‘good’ by the CQC.

Ashdale Lodge Care Home, which was rated good by the CQC in its last inspection in November 2017, is to close next year.

Sarah Clarke-Kuehn, group director for care at the company, said: “After carefully considering its long-term future, we have taken the decision to close our Ashdale Lodge Care Home.

“This is not a decision we have taken lightly and our priority remains the welfare of residents and our staff.

“We will be working with the local authority to support residents and their families to find new homes that meet their specific needs and we will be offering our staff as much assistance as we can.”

The purpose-built care home provides residential care for up to 37 people, including those living with dementia.

Sanctuary Care and Hull City Council are to begin finding new homes for the residents in the New Year.

The home was rated good in all areas, apart from effectiveness, which was given ‘requires improvement’, in its last inspection.

Councillor Gwen Lunn, portfolio holder for adult social care, told CHP: “Whilst it is unfortunate that Ashdale Lodge care home will be closing its doors in the New Year, we would like to reassure residents and their families that we will do our upmost to support them in ensuring their transition of care is as smooth as possible.

“We will continue to work closely with the provider and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure the residents are relocated in a suitable location.”
