Notice of intention to close Glen Valley, Fountainview and Ashgrove care homes in Quarrier's Village

Quarriers has announced the closure of three small care homes in Quarrier’s Village – Glen Valley, Fountainview and Ashgrove, affecting a total of 17 residents.

Dr Ron Culley, Quarriers CEO, said: “Quarriers has announced the difficult decision to close three care homes in Quarrier’s Village (Inverclyde). We have faced ongoing difficulties in recruiting the required staff numbers to provide the highest level of care within this care model and geographical location.

“We are working closely with the relevant local authorities and the families of the people we support to ensure that suitable alternative accommodation is secured. We offer heartfelt apologies for the disruption this decision will cause to the people we currently support and their families.

“This decision was made with the utmost consideration for the safety and well-being of those in our care. We are dedicated to making this period of transition as comfortable as possible for all involved and will engage in regular communication with the families to keep them informed of updates. Quarriers does not foresee any staff losses in relation to this process.”
