Fears for elderly dementia sufferers as Devon care home closes
A loss-making Devon care home is set to close forcing 20 elderly and vulnerable dementia sufferers into a traumatic move and threatening up to 30 jobs.
The Eclipse Lodge is the second home to shut in Torquay this year, following a bitter dispute between Torbay Council and home owners, who say state-funding is seriously inadequate.
Owner Paul Ewer, whose company Crocus Care has run the facility for 11 years, said he took the decision to close on March 8 with a “heavy heart”
He said he is concerned about the implications for his clients, adding: “There is a risk in moving them – they are settled and it can upset them so much - that’s why it has taken me so long to come to this decision."
