A HEREFORD care home has been named amongst the top 20 in the West Midlands.

Newstead House was named one of the top 20 recommended care homes for 2020 in the region by carehome.co.uk.

The awards are allocated on the basis of independent reviews on the website, which is one of the UK’s leading directories and search sites for nursing home care.

On the website, Newstead scored 9.9 out of 10.

Newstead also holds a gold standards framework award, which is a care industry benchmark awarded to homes that have exceptional nursing and end of life care, both for residents and in support of their families.

The recent top 20 award, being review based, is a great recognition from families and the wider community, according to the manager of the home in Venns Lane.

Ali Ough said: “I am incredibly proud we have been awarded as a top 20 home in the West Midlands.

“It is a fantastic accolade for my team and reflects their dedication to the care and well-being of our residents and families.

“We are a big family here and together work hard to ensure everyone feels loved and valued.”
