Staff and residents at a Whitley Bay care home are celebrating their latest praise from inspectors.

Earsdon Grange care home, which offers residential care for elderly and those living with dementia, was rated ‘good’ in all standards by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The care home was judged on safety, effectiveness, care, responsiveness and leadership.

Nicola Bell, home manager of Earsdon Grange, said: “We have all worked extremely hard to meet all the criteria set out by the regulator. Everyone here is committed to providing the highest quality care so we were delighted with the findings of CQC and the feedback they received from residents and relatives.”

“We are always looking for ways to continue improving and the report will help us to develop our services.”

Operated by UK Care providers Countrywide Care Homes, Earsdon Grange offers care for up to 48 people.

Regional Director of Countrywide, Stephen Young, said: “Congratulations to Nicola and her team at Earsdon Grange.

“We are very proud of the home’s care standards, whilst still keeping the homely, welcoming feel that many homes can only strive to achieve.”
