Abstract

<p>As part of a wider investigation into supply of care homes a study was conducted investigating the factors and<p><p>circumstances that lead to homes closing from the perspective of independent providers. Following five in-depth<p><p>exploratory interviews structured interviews were designed and conducted with 20 owners, managers or owner/managers<p><p>of homes that had closed within the previous two years or (in one case) were at the point of closure. The interviews<p><p>focused on the background and motivation of providers, the characteristics and history of the home, the combinations of<p><p>factors and circumstances that led to closure, and the closure process and consequences for staff and residents. The<p><p>process and consequences of closure will be reported in a separate paper.
