A nursing home in Grantham, which cares for up to 50 people, has confirmed it has gone into administration.

St Edmund’s Nursing Home, on Worcester Road, Grantham, would not comment further or say what the future held for the residents of the home.

A relative of one of the residents at St Edmund’s told the Journal she and other relatives were very concerned for their future. The woman, who did not wish to be named, said she had a parent at the home.

She said: “Relatives are very concerned. I feel this is just another example of the way in which care homes are being treated at the moment. They cannot afford to stay open. I feel sorry for the staff as well as the families. What is going to happen?”

The relative said she had contacted the home to try and get more information but no one was available to speak to her.

Last year, a report by the Care Quality Commission found the nursing home ‘required improvement’ in four areas when it asked if the service was safe, effective, responsive and well-led. It said the home was ‘good’ when it asked if the service was caring.

Pete Sidgwick, assistant director for Adult Care, said: “We are aware that the company that runs St Edmund’s Nursing Home in Grantham has gone into administration. At this time there is no suggestion that the home will close. We’re working closely with staff at the home to make sure that residents continue to get high quality care. We will also help to facilitate discussions with potential buyers.”
