Care Home Closes

Amid serious safety fears

The private care home, Clinton House Nursing Home in St Austell, Cornwall, run by the Morleigh Group and which cares for 30 “vulnerable” adults, has closed amid serious concerns for residents’ safety.  Morleigh, which runs six homes in Cornwall, has confirmed three others are being investigated.

The care home’s owner said the “best option” was to close Clinton House because of the “significant challenges” it faced.
