A South Wiltshire care home, that's been caring for residents with dementia for more than two decades, will close at the beginning of February.

The Cleveland Lodge Care Home in Figheldean (pictured here) has been owned and operated by the Foreman family since 1995.

It was taken over by Mrs Boulanger (nee Foreman) and has looked after hundreds of people over that time.

The family has been caring for people in Wiltshire for 43 years in total.

The home now has 13 residents and 21 members of staff and the directors are now working to help them into the future.

Partner James Foreman said:

"It has been a very difficult decision to take and this is a very sad day for us. Our priority is the residents, families and staff. We are working closely with Wiltshire Council to support a smooth transition to new homes."

The home itself is due to cease trading on February 5th 2018.

The family tell us the decision was initially discussed over Christmas.

Mrs Boulanger passed away peacefully at Ipswich Hospital on January 5th 2018.
