Closure of six older people's care homes

In March 2015 the closure of six residential care homes for older people, and work with residents and their families to find alternative accommodation and services, was agreed.

Four of the six homes – Longfield in Cranleigh, Cobgates in Farnham, Brockhurst in Ottershaw and Dormers in Caterham – have now been closed.

The final two homes – Park Hall in Reigate and Pinehurst in Camberley – will be closing by the summer of 2017

The welfare of residents will be the primary consideration up to and during the closure of the homes. The Council will carefully manage the process to review and assess the needs of all residents in the homes to see what alternative services will best suit their needs.  This will be phased over an extended period, in full discussion with families and carers and informed by national best practice guidance, in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for each individual.

The Cabinet report, along with background papers, are available on the Council's website. The full consultation report is also available below.
