Congratulations to Broadlands, a care home in Oulton Broad near Lowestoft which became the first Greensleeves Care home to achieve an OUTSTANDING rating from CQC. Broadlands has the advantage of a great location but more importantly, equally brilliant staff. The home has been on the Eden Alternative UK Register of Homes since April 2013 and is the second Eden Registered Home, after Amherst Court, an Avante home in Kent to achieve an OUTSTANDING rating.
Of the 36 homes currently included on the Register, 32 have been inspected by CQC under the new regime, one is awaiting a report and three are in Wales and come under CSSIW. Of the 32, two have been rated as OUTSTANDING and 26 as GOOD, 4 are REQUIRING IMPROVEMENT. To put this another way, 87% of homes on the Eden Alternative UK Register are rated as good or outstanding compared with a National figure of around 70%.
