Lofthouse Grange & Lodge has become the fourth Orchard Care Homes service in Leeds to be given an all-good rating by the CQC.
The home, that was providing residential care for 47 elderly people, joined Nesfield Lodge, Middleton Park Lodge and Paisley Lodge in achieving Good in all categories following an inspection by the CQC in May.
Commenting on the four homes’ achievement, Sarah Armitage, Regional Director at Orchard Care Homes, said: “I couldn’t be more proud of our Leeds homes for the hard work and commitment that they have put into achieving their Good CQC ratings. Our focus now shifts to maintaining this Good standard and continuing to improve ourselves.”
Orchard Care Homes said the homes promoted a person-centred approach to care that provides residents with independence, compassion and empathy and all play a vital role in their local communities.
One resident at Paisley Lodge said: “The staff are kindness itself. They make this place what it is, a home, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.”
Relatives with a family living at Nesfield Lodge said: “The carers are brilliant, they bend over backwards for residents and their families – it’s more like home, so welcoming and kind.”
Almost three in four Orchard Care Homes (71%) are rated Good by the CQC with all homes boasting a five-star food and hygiene rating.
