The areas highly praised included staff, activities, care and support.

Nick Smith, Wansbeck Care Home manager.

It received £200 to spend on a party for residents as its score was above the national average, so the home is having a Royal party on Friday – Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday.

Manager Nick Smith said: “We know what we do is important, so we work together to bring a little joy to everyday experiences, whilst striving to always be respectful, trusted and caring.”

The home was recently awarded Dementia Care Framework accreditation. This involves training staff to be pioneers of dementia care.
