Nursing home hailed by resident's granddaughter
by David Simister

AN UPHOLLAND care home for the elderly has been praised by the granddaughter of one of its residents.

Sue Marshall got in touch with The Champion to give a glowing report on The Spinney nursing home, on College Road, where her 94-year-old grandmother Francis Barton is looked after.

“The level of care is beautiful, the staff always go out of their way to look after my grandmother, and will always clean her up and so on where other care homes she'd been to previously wouldn't,” she said.

“The level of care the staff there provide for the residents really isn't reflected by the ratings they've had in the past.”

Staff at The Spinney, which caters for up to 35 elderly residents, told The Champion they were delighted that Mrs Marshall was pleased with the way her grandmother was being looked after.

Jacqueline Hodgson, care manager at the home, said: “I think the quality of the care being offered to our residents speaks for itself, and I'm delighted that our staff here have been recognised for all their hard work in looking sure everyone here is well looked after.

”The current team are doing a great job, meaning we are a great place for people to come to.

“We haven't always had the best press in the past, but we are moving away from that and I think that's reflected in the quality of what we offer.”
