A NURSING home is celebrating 30 years in business - and another 'Good' rating from health watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Inspectors visited Park House Nursing Home, on Park Lane in Queensbury, in January.

In a report from that visit they rated the home, which provides accommodation, personal care and nursing care for older people and people living with dementia, as being good in every area.

The CQC said people and their relatives said staff were kind and caring. Staff were also said to have developed "positive and trusting" relationships with people, which helped to keep them safe.

The report said: "We observed staff chatting to residents when they were having breakfast, complimenting them on their appearance and discussing their plans and wishes for the day.

"Staff knew what was important to people and offered people reassurance and comfort. It was clear good relationships had developed between people and staff. Staff spent time engaging people in conversation as well as completing care and support tasks."

Inspectors added: "We received a range of unanimously positive feedback from relatives about the quality of the staff. One

person said 'the staff here are brilliant'."

The home was said to be "consistently managed and well-led", as well as clean, tidy and comfortable.

Co-owner Ian Normington highlighted how Park House had received good reports since it opened its doors and had aimed to move with the times and embrace new technology.

The home is also trying to provide new facilities for residents, including a woodland walk.
