A CARE home that supports almost 50 people with dementia or acquired brain injuries has been praised in a recent report by inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The Hawthorns care home in Evesham has received a much sought-after ‘outstanding’ rating by the CQC, the highest grade awarded by the independent regulator.

As part of their report, inspectors said: “The atmosphere within the service was exceedingly friendly, comfortable, inviting and open. Positive and innovative ways to support people had been and were continuously being developed.”
