A CARE home in Droitwich has been named as one of the best in the West Midlands.

Dorset House Nursing Home, on Blackfriars Avenue, has been chosen by residents and their families as one of the Top 20 care homes in in the West Midlands.

There are 1,606 homes in the West Midlands with the top 20 receiving an award from the UK’s leading reviews guide to care homes, carehome.co.uk.

The award is based on reviews of the care home written by their residents, as well as their friends and relatives.

Rated 10 out 10, Dorset House has won the award for the sixth consecutive year.

Home manager Karen Johnson said: “We’re delighted to win a Top 20 Award for the sixth year in a row!

“It means so much to us that this award is influenced by the personal reviews of our residents and their relatives.

“Our residents are the centre of all we do here at Dorset House, and it is fantastic to recognised for the dedicated care we provide”.

Staff members and residents gathered to congratulate each other as they enjoyed cupcakes decorated with the award logo.

Carehome.co.uk has nearly 250,000 reviews of over 17,000 homes across the UK, which reviews manager Amanda Hopkins feels puts them in a good position to offer people a “real insight” into what a care home and its staff are like.

“Our reviews reveal the quality of their care, activities and nutrition as well as if the care home is value for money and the standard of their facilities,” she said.

“Reviews of Dorset House Nursing Home show they provide an excellent standard of care and we would like to congratulate them on being a Top 20 care home in the West Midlands. It is a huge achievement to be named as a top rated care home by the residents who actually receive the care as well as their family and friends.

“Choosing a care home can be daunting for both the person going to live there as well as their family, so we hope our awards which are given to the highest rated homes will help make the search easier.”
