A Cramlington care home is celebrating after being praised by industry regulators the Care Quality Commission (CQC), following a recent inspection.

Astor Court and Lodge View care home received a clean bill of health after achieving ‘Good’ in all standards set out by the CQC, which judges a care home’s services based on safety, effectiveness, care, responsiveness and it’s leadership.

Home manager Mandy Mackley 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 for our residents so we were delighted with the findings of CQC and the feedback they received from residents and relatives.”

“That being said we are also always looking for ways to continue improving and the report will help us to develop our services going forward too.”

Operated by UK Care providers Countrywide Care Homes, Astor Court and Lodge View offers care for up to 71 people with residential, nursing or dementia related care needs.
