A CARE home in Winchester has been commended as one of the top homes in the South East.
Tegfield House, on Chilbolton Avenue, came 16th of 3,304 homes according to online recommendations registered on the website carehome.co.uk.
Director of carehome.co.uk Davina Ludlow said: “We felt the best people to rate a care home were the people who really know its ins and outs, its residents and their families.
“Tegfield House care home has proved that it provides a great service and we’d like to congratulate them on being a top recommended home in the South East. It’s a brilliant achievement to be recognised for your hard work but particularly from the people who you work hard for.
“The care home will be recognised on our website as a top rated home and will receive a certificate from us.”
Manager of Tegfield House, Shirely Bartlett, said: “Having just celebrated our 10th anniversary of being part of the Hartford Care Group this really is the icing on the cake. It is particularly special as the award is based on personal recommendations from our residents and their friends and families.
“It is heart-warming to read the many honest and touching reviews about the care we provide at Tegfield, it’s a real morale boost for staff and we are all very proud.”
