A FAMILY-owned care home has been rated good on all levels in its first inspection since changing ownership.

Totham Lodge Home for the Eldery, in Broad Street Green Road, Great Totham, registered with the Care Quality Commission in September 2017 when it changed ownership.

The home caters for elderly adults who need nursing or personal care, or have dementia or physical disabilities.

Home owners, Joanne Wells and Daniel Page were pleased with the results.

Joanne said: “We are delighted to have received ‘good’ in all areas and aim to keep improving with the help of our loyal, hardworking and dedicated staff.

“As a family-run home for 22 years, it was devastating when the owner, our mother, passed away two and a half years ago.

“But we have once again received very complimentary comments from residents, relatives and healthcare professionals who visit our service.”

The home was rated good for being safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

The report said: “People and their relatives told us the service was a safe place to live.

“There were sufficient numbers of staff deployed to meet the needs of people who used the service.

“Staff were well supported at the service and received induction, training and supervision to carry out their role.

“People had access to healthcare services to maintain their health and well-being.”
