A CARE home in Bideford has received a positive report from an unannounced inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

One resident of the home told inspectors they had a lot of friends there, and another said the staff were ‘the best we have had.’
It said: “We saw that people’s health and social care needs had been assessed and their choice of activities had been discussed with them and recorded.
“We saw that staff had worked with other health and social care professionals to work out good ways of arranging care and support.
