Families of residents at a Langholm care home say they're desperate for it to remain open.
The operators of the Dalarran home say it's making a loss and are looking for more cash from Dumfries and Galloway Council.
Supporters say the home is vital to the local community and its 12 residents.
Today Alan Weatherstone, whose parents are in the Dalarran, said: "The NHS and the council in Dumfries and Galloway have admitted there's a need for care here and we need them to step up to the mark and do something about it.
"If we lose Dalarran it will be a disaster for the Eskdale Valley."
A council meeting about the home's future is due to take place on Tuesday.
