Jewish Care has announced the closure of Rubens House, a residential home which provides personal and dementia care, in order to allow “efficient use of resources”.
The care home in Finchley, which was rated ‘good’ in the latest CQC inspection, will not close until all 33 residents are relocated to one of the five Jewish Care residential homes situated within a 3 mile radius.
Jewish Care has confirmed that it is not planning any staff redundancies as part of the closure and hopes to relocate all 61 members of staff to positions elsewhere.
In a statement, Jewish Care chief executive Daniel Carmel-Brown said: “Jewish Care strives to provide high quality care and services, which are effective and efficient, in fit-for-purpose facilities.
“We have decided that now is the right time to close Rubens House.
“This is an opportunity for us to provide residents with a better environment in any of our other Jewish Care homes that are local to Rubens House. In addition, it will increase Jewish Care’s efficient use of resources”.
