EVERY effort should be made to keep care services for the elderly on a site in Meltham, says Colne Valley MP Kali Mountford.
The Kirklees Council- run Greenacres old people's home on Huddersfield Road is one of seven under threat because they do not meet modern standards.
Kirklees Council chiefs are to hold talks to decide whether to spend money on the seven buildings, shut them or convert them into another facility.
Ms Mountford welcomed the consultation and said there were a number of options beside closure.
These could include refurbishment, rebuilding, redevelopment for sheltered housing with on-site care or switching to other day care uses.
She added: "My aim is to preserve the best possible services for elderly people on the site.
"I am in touch with senior social services officials and, at this stage, my understanding is that all options are open."
The review is the final phase in a multi-million
pound programme to transform services for older people.
Kirklees is building four new homes, costing £10m, which are expected to open next year.
