Jane Campbell House, in Waverley Road, will close in late Spring after a decision by Hertfordshire County Council.
The local authority, who run it in conjunction with Quantum Care, have said that it is no longer fit for purpose, people need bigger rooms, with more privacy and dignity, as well as modern facilities, such as en-suite bedrooms.
Residents will be moved Fosse House in the city and Willow Court in Harpeden where extensions will mean more bedrooms and living space.
Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Care, Colette Wyatt Love, said: 'Hertfordshire County Council and Quantum Care want to ensure residents are cared for in the most comfortable facilities that are suited to their individual and varied needs.
'New facilities at Willow Court and Fosse incorporate modern advances in care that will ensure we are best placed to meet the current and future needs of our older citizens and the relocation of residents will allow them to live more independently in more modern homes.'
