In a statement, staff said: “Grovewood House has been a care home for close to 40 years and has been under new management since last summer. The staff team have been working closely with Northumberland Council and the CQC and were on course to get a ‘good’ rating at the next inspection so the decision by the owners to close was a huge blow.

“The closure news was not only devastating to the hard working and caring staff of the home but also the residents and their families.”
