Gave this one a code name as its quite a little gem thb.
Credit all the Pretty Vacant for this one, (I just happened to of tagged along for the ride) as she has been watching & monitoring for a while.
The property has now sold so hopefully work will soon be underway to stop al the goons getting in and ruining it.

This place was a 21 bed care home which had some serious failings as noted in a 2016 report including alarmingly not having a registered manager!

Some of the stated issues were...
significant breaches inc Regulation 12: Safe care and Treatment, Person Centred care and a warning notice under section 33 of the Health and Safety & care act.
failure to have a registered manager.

A large number of residents contracts were cancelled shortly after by the local council.
The home was finally closed & went on the market in late 2017.

A bit pic heavy this one but hope u like.

That's lush.

I guess this one falls into another category of care home - gone is the sterile 'hospital' feel of a care home and in is a manor house feel. Looks like the type of place where the old confused general wanders around! I guess a ladies only place though? (don't mention if it would give the location away)

Story time:
My mother once worked in private care at a similar place to this. It was a ladies only home and held 11 residents.
One night I was on a bus heading into town for a beer. It was winter, raining and dark - about 9 pm. The bus drove past the home and I spotted an old lady in a pink nightie. She'd wandered out the home, crossed a main road and had taken a small coal shovel with her. She was knelt and digging a hole, in the dark, in the rain and soaked. I had to call my mother to call the home because escaped resident.
The home closed not too long after that event - I wonder why..

Thanks sausage, it was a grand old building but did have a sad feeling about it. A lot of the personal artefacts (lots of photos) were in attic, I guessing a resident died with no next of kin & was just a case of “stick it all up there”. It was scary researching & finding all the breeches of care that they had though which is a shame cos the building itself is more the sort of place I’d like to b in when older!

Nope - I refuse to head into a care home. I'd be banned anyway!
They've planned ahead here and put me into a bungalow ready for my madness coming (next week).

Those artifacts. I've mentioned before about how much I love those old images. I know some homes around this way have a cupboard where if someone passes and the family doesn't want an item, it's usually placed into the 'special' cupboard for other other residents who might want or need it - lamps or a serving tray for example. With those more personal items there's definitely a reason they were kept. Was a relative coming to collect but then didn't? Were they seen as just too important to throw?
So many stories in those places.

It's awful to think though that most of that stuff will just end up in a skip with no thought or care in terms of the history or the story behind it. Really hope some of it does get preserved....

Great report that.

I find it quite upsetting at the thought that the personal effects those poor residents cherished for so many years, memories and history, just ending up in a skip. I'm sure someone, somewhere in their families, would like to sift through them once in a while in the future. Years and years of history that helped them with their diminishing memories, just lost for ever.

The story around this place really hits home with me as personally, I am rapidly approaching having to make this very decision for my elderly mother. And it scares the shit out of me that I could pick the wrong home for her!!!

Yeah guess so, shame its not listed as it dates to 1885 I believe & its in really good structural condition but as always they r just interested in the most profitable outcome. Expect the tour bus to b hitting this one soon!
