Note:

The figures provided represent the number of care homes that have de-activated. In some cases, these will be true closures where the care home service is no longer open or operating. In others however, it may be that the care home has appeared to close but continues to operate under new registration due to a legal entity change or a change in the provider. This means that the number of de-activations should not be used as an indication of the total number of care homes that have closed.
