The ringing endorsement of Park Lodge, in Outgang Road, came in the home’s latest inspection by the Care Quality Commission.

The routine visit last month saw residents praise the home and the staff for the care they received.

“One told us, ‘You’d have to be daft if you didn’t like living here, the staff are brilliant.’ Another said: ‘The staff redecorated this lounge themselves, they got money from the League of Friends. It looks lovely.’”

Inspectors noted the friendly, lively and welcoming atmosphere, and highlighted the close links with the local community which meant there was a constant stream of visitors.

Inspectors ruled that the home adhered to all five basic standards which were assessed.
