A GREAT Lever care home has been rated "Good" by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)

Mill View Care Home was praised for being a place where "staff treated people with kindness, compassion and respect".

Residents told inspectors they rated the home and its staff highly, particularly the training they received.

Mill View Care Home Manager, Cheryl Wildman, said she was delighted that the home had received such a positive CQC report.

She said: “I want to thank the team for all their hard work and dedication because they are the reason we have received such a strong report.

“Every day we strive to provide the highest quality care and support for the people who call Mill View home. It’s wonderful to see that fact has been recognised by the inspectors.

“But we will not rest on our laurels. We will continue to innovate and improve as we seek to become an outstanding home serving our local community.”

The home, on Bridgeman Street, provides care and support for up to 180 people.

In the report, the CQC said each of its five inspection criteria – is the service safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led? – were "Good".

The unannounced inspection included feedback from residents family members, and staff.

Family members praised the quality of food on offer with one relative saying: “The food is absolutely excellent; I never need to say a word about the food.”

The caring attitude displayed by staff in the home was also given special mention in the final report.

One person told the inspectors: “They’ve looked after (my relative) and loved them from the minute they came here.”

The report also praised the home for identifying people’s different religious and cultural needs and ensuring that these were met.
