Foxton Grange closes ‘reluctantly’ after £1.2m loss

Foxton Grange care home in Leicester is to close after losing more than £1.2m over the past five years.

Owner Methodist Homes (MHA) said the decision to shut the 36-place specialist dementia and dementia nursing home had been made ‘reluctantly’.

The provider cited an over-supply of care home places in the area. This meant occupancy levels at Foxton Grange remained too low to cover running costs. There are 79 care homes within a five mile radius.

The national charity’s Board of Trustees said the decision was not related to COVID-19. It felt the home’s resources could be used more effectively elsewhere to provide care and support for older people.

“Closing MHA Foxton Grange is not an easy decision for us to make. We are fully aware of the distress this will have caused residents and their relatives,” said Dan Ryan, director of operations at MHA.

The charity is the country’s largest charitable care provider. It runs a further 89 care homes as well as community-based services and retirement living.

“As a charity, we have to make sure we use our resources wisely,” said Ryan.  “We are working with our health and social care colleagues to provide support and guidance to residents and their families. We will help them identify suitable new homes and make sure their move goes as smoothly as possible.”

Residents will be offered places at suitable MHA care homes, including MHA Aigburth in Oadby.
