What we consulted on
The Council’s Cabinet agreed in September 2019 to consult Osborne Grove Nursing Home residents, carers and other stakeholders on proposals to close the Home to allow for the development of a new expanded 70 bed nursing home on site, and to relocate residents to suitable alternative nursing home provision while works commence.
In June 2018 a decision was taken by the council’s Cabinet to undertake a feasibility study on the future development of the Osborne Grove Nursing Homesite.
Carers and families, third sector and community groups, health and social care partners and other interested stakeholders were actively involved in carrying out the feasibility study. In July 2019 the completed feasibility report detailing options for the future of the site was presented to the council’s Cabinet which agreed to endorse the preferred option.
This is to demolish the current Osborne Grove building and build in its place a 70-bed nursing provision that:
- ensures the council meets current and future needs in Haringey
- maximises the use of the site overall
- creates services that are more flexible, are more ‘personalised’ and give greater choice
- creates local care and support for people in the community
- has better long-term outcomes for people at a lower cost
- ensures we are better prepared for an ageing population.
It was further noted in the report that none of the future development options for the site, including the preferred option, could be safely started with the current residents remaining in the home.
The results of the study are available in the Osborne Grove Nursing Home feasibility study (PDF, 561KB).
The council’s proposal is to close Osborne Grove Nursing Home. This would enable the necessary site inspection works, planning and demolition to commence for the development of the new expanded 70-bed nursing home.
The council proposes to relocate residents to a suitable alternative nursing home provision that is capable of meeting their care and support needs and promoting their wellbeing. There will be a reassessment of residents needs and care and support plan. The assessment will take into account existing care plans and risk assessment. The outcome of the re-assessment will inform the decision on the suitability of the alternative nursing home provision.
A transition plan will be developed with each resident and their family/carers, with support from social workers and health services, to ensure the move to alternative care is safely and sensitively handled. An Assessment and Transition Process guide for residents, carers and family members on the re-assessment and transition process can be accessed below:
The process will be very carefully managed and adhere to the Managing Care Home closures checklist (PDF, 62KB) as devised by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS).
