Wel­fare homes score highly in in­spec­tions

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE - BY LEON SY­MONS

NOR­WOOD AND Jewish Care es­tab­lish­ments have earned top marks in a new na­tional in­spec­tion rat­ings sys­tem.

The Com­mis­sion for So­cial Care In­spec­tion this week launched a star scheme for Bri­tain’s 4,000 care homes, rang­ing from three stars for ex­cel­lent to zero for poor.

Of the first batch to be rated, two Nor­wood homes in Ken­ton re­ceived three stars, along with Jewish Care’s Jack Gard­ner House in Gold­ers Green. Other three-star homes were Beis Pin­chos (Agu­das Is­rael) in Stoke New- in­g­ton; Nightin­gale in Clapham, Don­isthorpe Hall in Leeds and Philip Cussins House in New­cas­tle.

Six other Jewish Care homes re­ceived two stars (good), as did three more Nor­wood homes, plus Heath­lands and Brook­vale in Manch­ester and Han­nah Levy House in Bournemouth.

Nor­wood’s op­er­a­tional ser­vices di­rec­tor David Har­ris was “pleased that Nor­wood’s high stan­dard of care is re­flected in the scores awarded to our res­i­den­tial homes. Nor­wood con­tin­ues to strive for ex­cel­lence in sup­port­ing chil­dren and adults liv­ing with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties or cop­ing with so­cial dif­fi­cul­ties.”
