Fifty-four jobs are under threat following the announcement that Hamilton Court Care Home in Armagh is to shut.
The care home on the Hamiltonsbawn Road is one of the seven Four Seasons facilities across Northern Ireland set for closure.
There are currently 31 residents and 54 staff at the home and it remains unclear what will happen regarding staff positions.
A spokesperson for Four Seasons described the closures as unavoidable.
“The principal reason behind this decision is that each of these homes is operating at a loss and they are no longer viable,” the spokesman added.
“The fee income that the homes receive is below the cost of the care they are providing and we have effectively been paying a subsidy for them to continue to provide care. We regret that we cannot continue to sustain this position.”
