A Frodsham old people’s home has been graded ‘good’ by the watchdog.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) had carried out an unexpected inspection at Newton Hall on March 1.
Newton Hall provides care for up to 34 residents.
Clients said they were happy living there.
The CQC added that the premises were clean and hygienic and that management had recognised that it needed to be redecorated, and that a refurbishment plan was in place for 2016.
An inspection report published by the watchdog said the local authority, Cheshire West And Chester Council, had no concerns about the service.
In addition the CQC said another watchdog, Healthwatch, had visited in May 2015 and found the quality of care to be ‘satisfactory’.
The CQC said residents felt safe at Newton Hall.
The watchdog’s report said: “People told us that they felt safe living at Newton Hall, ‘I feel safe definitely’ and ‘I am happy here with no
worries about anything’.
“People told us that they received medication when they needed it and that it was never missed.
“They told us that there was always staff around to help them if they needed it.
“People told is that they were happy with the cleanliness of the building and stressed that they had been able to personalise their own bedrooms.”
