Harrow care home wins prestigious award

A care home in Harrow has been chosen by residents and their families as one of the Top 20 care homes in London.

Out of the 1,484 care homes in London, Sancroft Community Care in Harrow has landed within the top 20 receiving an award from the UK’s leading reviews guide to care homes, carehome.co.uk.

The award is based on reviews of the care home written by their residents, as well as their friends and relatives.

There are over 17,000 care homes in the UK caring for around half a million people. Over 12,000 of these care homes support older people aged 65 and over, while the rest care for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues.

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of carehome.co.uk, said: “We now have nearly 250,000 reviews of care homes on carehome.co.uk so we are able to give people a real insight into what a care home and its staff are like. Our reviews reveal the quality of their care, activities and nutrition as well as if the care home is value for money and the standard of their facilities.

“Reviews of Sancroft Community Care show they provide an excellent standard of care and we would like to congratulate them on being a Top 20 care home in London. It is a huge achievement to be named as a top rated care home by the residents who actually receive the care as well as their family and friends.

“Choosing a care home can be daunting for both the person going to live there as well as their family, so we hope our awards which are given to the highest rated homes will help make the search easier.”
