Three elderly people's homes in Cambridgeshire could be saved from closure under proposals to be discussed by the county council's social services committee on Wednesday 22 April.
After extensive consultation with residents, families, staff trade unions and other interested parties in the public and private sector, the committee will consider a report which lays out the future for the homes.
Committee chairman John Powley said: 'The extensive consultation period was designed to investigate all viable alternatives to closure and I am extremely pleased that a way forward may have been found.
'There is still a lot of work to do but the future for the residents, their families and carers and the staff at these three homes now looks much more secure.
'Because of the tough financial position social services is in, the committee wsa forced to take some very difficult decisions including considering closing elderly people's homes. That these three may have been saved from closure is extremely pleasing and shows the value of the consultation.'
