Dearne Hall care home praised by care regulator
Dearne Hall care home in Bolton-upon-Dearne has been classed as Good in all areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Staff at Anchor’s Dearne Hall on Ringway were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 48 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 16 August 2018. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Angie Lowrey 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 Dearne Hall a good care home but to be given such praise from the regulator is wonderful. We are proud of the meals which are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and the high levels of training and support our staff receive.
“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 Dearne Hall: One member of staff said, "I am passionate about my job I treat residents like I would my own family". “We saw people were cared for and supported by staff that were kind, patient and respectful.” One person said, "The food is wonderful, always fresh and hot."
