Wessex iPhone App

7:36am 3rd July 2014

A £4M care home that was built in Blandford just 2 years ago, is set to close.

Dorset County Council has recommended shutting Phoenix House because it's under used.

The care home opened in 2012 and provides specialist accommodation for people with learning and physical disabilities.

The local authority says they won't close Phoenix House before service users have found a placement elsewhere.
