Tolson Grange care home praised by care regulator
Tolson Grange care home in Huddersfield has been classed as Good in all areas and overall by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Tolson Grange in were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.

Regional Support Manager Sharon Croucher 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 Tolson Grange 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.”
