GROVE Hill care home in Highworth has been named among the top 20 recommended care homes in the South West.

The home came 17th out of 2,370 homes in the South West, receiving an award from the online directory and industry website

The award was based on the home’s online recommendations from its residents plus their friends and relatives.

Director of Davina Ludlow said: “We felt the best people to rate a care home were the people who really know its ins and outs – its residents and their families.

“Grove Hill care home has proved that it provides a great service and we’d like to congratulate them on being a top recommended home in the South West! It’s a brilliant achievement to be recognised for your hard work, but particularly from the people who you work hard for.

“The care home will be recognised on our website as a top rated home and will receive a certificate from us.

Manager of Grove Hill, James Dunn told “The award is clarification of our quality and all the hard work that we hopefully achieve for the residents.

“The team here cares for every resident as a true individual with the same dedication and care and love as they would for their own family member.

“Good communication and face- to-face daily talking with residents and relatives we feel keeps our relationships strong; this is important to ensure the continuity and quality of the care we are giving.”
