Brackenfield care home in Frecheville, Sheffield has been classed as Good overall by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Brackenfield Hall on Fox Lane were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.

The home, which cares for up to 60 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 23rd October 2017. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.

Brackenfield Hall Manager Donna Ashton said everyone at the home was thrilled because they had worked so hard to maintain high standards of care. 

She said: “We have worked hard to make Brackenfield Hall a good care home but to be given such praise from the regulator is wonderful. We are proud of the care we provide, of the meals which are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and of the wide variety of meaningful activities enjoyed by our residents.

“Anchor has a specialist dementia care team so we also know how to care for people living with the condition so they lead as fulfilling a life as possible. 

“We welcome such rigorous inspections and clear ratings so older people and their families can see which homes are the best in the country. We’re so pleased to be classed as a good care home - we’ll be celebrating this success.”

The CQC inspection report, which can be found on the regulator’s website, highlighted the following examples of high standards of care at Brackenfield Hall: "I feel safe and well cared for, I know they [staff] would be there for me.” “We found a varied and nutritious diet was provided to support people's health.” 

One staff member told us; "I treat all my residents as my own, I love them."
