Last year, when the owners of Autumn Grange informed us at short notice and in breach of their contract with us that they intended to close the home, we acted swiftly to move all residents to alternative homes. Sadly one resident later died, and I extend my sympathy to her family.
We have since been conducting a safeguarding investigation into issues at the home, in conjunction with the police and the Care Quality Commission and will continue to help the police with their investigation into the death of a former resident.
