Cornwall Care residential home in Bude to close

A residential care home in Cornwall is to close because there is not enough demand to keep it open, managers say.

Not-for-profit organisation Cornwall Care said its St Hilary Home in Bude would shut on 3 March because the 37-bed facility's occupancy had dropped to 17 residents.

The organisation said residents, their families and staff had been informed.

It was also working with Cornwall Council to help current residents find a new place to live, it added.

The home looks after people requiring residential or dementia care.
