All of Rotherham’s council run care homes could close under money saving
proposals, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

The authority needs to close huge gaps in finances with senior officers
insisting no decisions have been made yet.

Several council departments are predicting massive overspends by the end of
the financial year, including children and young people’s services.

Another shortfall of more than £6m is predicted in adult care and housing,
with one option being to “decommission” the council’s five care homes.

The council says it’s committed to introducing a new “intermediate care”
package should that happen.

There’s due to be a meeting on Monday.
