Brendoncare is saddened to announce the proposed closure of our Aylesbury care home, Brendoncare Chiltern View.
As of today, we have entered a period of consultation with the staff team, with closure likely to take place by the end of April.
The happiness, safety and wellbeing of residents are always of utmost importance to Brendoncare and senior staff have been in attendance at the home today as this announcement was made to relatives, residents and employees.
Our Trustees have carefully considered the geographical coverage of the organisation and have concluded that Brendoncare Chiltern View falls outside of the area where the charity is best placed to focus its support for older people in the future. Chiltern View is leased and not owned by Brendoncare, and therefore we are not in a position to make the improvements needed to ensure the building offers the facilities required to provide the highest standards of care for people living with dementia.
The staff team at Brendoncare Chiltern View provide a wonderful, caring service for the people living in the home. We are grateful for the kindness and compassion they show to residents and family members every day.
These proposed changes do not affect any other Brendoncare service. Brendoncare has an active programme of investment and redevelopment for our other services.
Brendoncare provides a range of nursing, dementia and residential care services, as well as offering an extensive network of community support services through community hubs, clubs (both physical and virtual), and digital and telephone support. The charity plans to extend its support further within the communities in which it operates, to provide a continuum of care and support services for people as and when they need it.
In January 2020, the sale of Brendoncare Woodhayes in Exeter was announced and this is likely to complete during 2021.
