A care home in Armley has been classed as ‘good’ in all areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Beech Hall on Far Fold Lane, which cares for up to 64 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection in July 2018. Care homes are classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
The care home, which opened in 2015, was last year classed as ‘requiring improvement’.
The latest report said:
“We observed staff to be caring and supportive towards people who used the service. Interactions were friendly and showed us that staff knew people well. People spoke positively about the staff who cared for them.”
Home manager, Victoria Gudgin, said everyone at the home was thrilled with the latest report. She said:
“We have worked hard to make Beech 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.”
