A new provider has been found to take over a Windermere care home threatened with closure.
Holehird provides care for people of all ages with physical disabilities. More than 60 staff work at the care home, which houses 24 residents.
A joint statement from Tim Farron MP, Leonard Cheshire, Holehird Trust and St Gregory’s Homecare said: “Since Leonard Cheshire took the decision that it could no longer provide care at Holehird, we’ve been working hard to try to find a new provider to take over the running of the home.
“Holehird has provided amazing care for people of all ages with physical disabilities and complex needs for the past 60 years.
“So we’re delighted that St Gregory’s Homecare have come forward to offer to take over the running of Holehird and we’ve been working together to try to make this a reality.
“There are still several hurdles to overcome and there is no certainty that it will be achieved, but we wanted to make this statement to give confidence that we are committed to ensuring the best possible outcome for Holehird and the wider community.”
