Residents and staff of a care home in Cornwall are being kept 'up to date' following a proposal to shut the home for good. 

Retirement Villages Group (RVG) is consulting employees and residents of Roseland Court on the proposed closure of the home which is based in Tregony. 

The owner company says "The closure of the 36-bed home would enable investment in the Roseland Parc site, and the provision of additional supported, independent living accommodation for retired people."

RVG said it will be working closely with Cornwall Council and other partners to find suitable alternative care for the residents affected. 

It will also work alongside the care home operator to support employees affected by these proposals. However, redeployment opportunities are limited but will be explored wherever possible. 

Employees and union representatives will be kept fully informed about the proposals over the upcoming months. 

Nick Jones, commercial and property services director of RVG said: “We know this is upsetting for our residents and their families. We’ll listen carefully to their concerns and keep them up to date throughout this process.

“This is also difficult news for the professional and dedicated employees at Roseland Court. We’ll do all we can to support them, working with them as they explore future employment options.”

RVG specialises in providing integrated retirement communities, allowing retired people to live independently with the reassurance of support onsite if needed. 

According to its website, Roseland Court is based in the wider setting of Roseland Parc, which is a private, age-exclusive, independent village. 

It also states that Roseland Court offers residential, nursing, and residential memory care for those living with dementia. 

Roseland Court said it is unable to comment at this time.
