In October 2019, Cabinet approved the
continued direct provision of residential care in Lichfield;
providing 15 beds for countywide use. The existing Hawthorn House
facility is in a poor state of repair and does not offer the best
living environment for residents or value for money for taxpayers.
Investing in a new development for residential services will
support the modernisation of the service and will enable greater
use of technology to empower independence for residents and modern
working practices for staff. The paper will update Cabinet on an
options appraisal undertaken by Officers, seeking approval to
proceed with the recommendation.
