Good marks for care home

Have your say

A nursing home in Sheffield has been given the thumbs up following an inspection by the health watchdog.

The Care Quality Commission visited Norwood Grange at Longley for an unannounced check, the first inspection the home has had since being taken over by new operator Country Court Care.

An inspection report said the home was ‘fully compliant’, praising the level of communication between staff and residents. It also said residents were treated with respect and dignity.

Norwood Grange’s manager Sue Stephens said: “I’m ecstatic that the report was so positive.

“Receiving a ‘fully compliant’ status represents excellence, and gives our dedicated team the recognition they deserve for their hard work and commitment.”

She said the feedback from the Care Quality Commission had left staff ‘thrilled’.

The home provides care for people with dementia or mental health problems and has space to cater for nearly 40 residents.
