A GRIMETHORPE care home has been named as one of the top sites in the Yorkshire and Humber for the fifth year running.

Dearnevale Care Home, based on Elizabeth Street, was voted as one of the top 20 homes in the county - out of a possible 1,423 - by residents and their families.

The award is based on reviews of the care home, written by those who use it and have family members there.

Helen McGowan, care home manager, said: “We’re absolutely over the moon to achieve this status for the fifth year running.

“This award is special as it comes from the reviews generated by our service users and their families.

“It’s an honour and a pleasure to care for our service users and it means so much that their families submit such wonderful reviews.

“The team constantly strives to deliver excellent care and to be recognised in this way means so much to us all.”
