Osborne Grove Nursing home could be kept and expanded, after Haringey Council’s Cabinet agreed to halt its closure.

Cabinet this week (June 26) agreed to keep open the nursing home, in Upper Tollington Park, Stroud Green, and to explore options for creating additional and improved care provision on the site.

Councillor Peray Ahmet, Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health said:

“I’m delighted that Cabinet has taken the decision to halt the closure of Osborne Grove Nursing Home and instead explore options for improving and potentially expanding the home with a view to creating first-class care facilities here in Haringey.

“We know this has been a difficult time for residents, their families and carers as well as the Osborne Grove staff team, and we are working closely with everyone concerned to ensure they are fully supported. Residents currently in the Home who want to stay there will be able to do so, and we will ensure that and any development plans also allow for this.

“We believe that the most suitable solution will be to devise a detailed in-house proposal setting out how we can work with public sector partners and stakeholders to find the best way of keeping and expanding Osborne Grove to meet demands for residential and nursing care in the borough now and in the future.

“There is of course a significant amount of work still to do, but we are proud to now be exploring innovative models of care, supported by outstanding and flexible design and partnership.”
