Appleby care home recommended for closure

Cumbria County Council looks set to approve plans to close a care home in Appleby.

A report recommends the Cabinet should de-register Edenside care home, but continue to operate the care home in Penrith, where Edenside resident were transferred to during the floods.

The council says work is already being undertaken to develop a robust plan to address and support the future needs of older residents in the Appleby area.
