Care village celebrates accolades at the double

A CARE village, which has three homes on its site in Rotherham, is celebrating success after being recognised with two prestigious accolades.

Moorgate Care Village's Moorgate Croft has become one of the first services in the country to achieve the British Standard for Adult Residential Care.

The home – based at Nightingale Close along with Moorgate Lodge and Moorgate Hollow – was inspected by Care Inspections UK, the UK’s only registered and accredited care home inspection body, and was awarded a certificate of compliance.

The British Standard – BS8606:2019 specifies requirements for the provision of care for adults requiring support, personal, nursing, and/or specialist care within a residential setting.

Meanwhile Moorgate Hollow has been rated one of the top 20 care homes in Yorkshire and the Humber on review site for the third consecutive year.

The ranking is based on scores compiled from reviews from residents as well as their family and friends.

Chris Lane, a director at Park Lane Healthcare which operates the care village, said: “We’re delighted that the Moorgate services are doing so well in terms of resident and family reviews and objective, independent assessment.

“It is a testament to the hard work of the staff, particularly the managers, that these excellent standards are maintained year after year.

“I am particularly proud that Moorgate Croft has become one of the first services in the UK to be recognised as compliant with BS8606:2019.

“Our standards are an essential part of the care we give, and to be independently accredited against this demonstrates how seriously we take this at all levels within our organisation.”
