"The consultation questionnaires, I feel, are not being genuine about the consultation and I do not think they are being transparent," said Ms Smith, who travels from Ashby-de-la-Launde every day to visit her mother.
"There is so little detail and the questions are just aimed at everyone saying 'yes I agree' but when you break them down, what are you agreeing to? It seems very underhand."
As reported previously the staff at the Linelands Care Home in Nettleham are concerned about the people who go there but Lincolnshire County Council have stopped them from talking the press.
"We appreciate this woman's view about her mother's positive experience of the care provided in Linelands. The council has consistently stated that it is proud of the quality of care provided by staff.
"The issue we are consulting on is how we can match this quality of care with high quality care homes, many of which are dated and can no longer provide the facilities that we would want from a modern care home.
"We are happy to receive comments in any way people wish to send them to us. The questionnaire is to help with this feedback, but if people want to write in and express their views in other ways that is fine."
A decision on the care homes will be made at a meeting of the council's executive on Tuesday, 2nd March 2010.
