Sheffield nursing home’s high standards

Have your say

A Sheffield care home has won praise for its high standards by the health watchdog.

Hawkhills in Stannington - part of the Sheffcare chain - was rated ‘good’ in all areas by the Care Quality Commission.

In a report, inspectors said residents felt safe and were well cared-for by staff.

They added: “We saw people participated in a range of daily activities both in and outside of the home which were meaningful and promoted independence.”

The home recently opened a new specialist dementia unit.

Belinda Black, Sheffcare’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted that the inspectors found so much to praise, but even more importantly we are truly pleased that the highest praise comes from our residents and their families.”
