Woodland View, one of our specialist dementia care homes, has been rated as ‘good’ by the Care Quality Commission.

Based in Lightwood, Woodland View is home to 30 people with complex or enhanced dementia.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC), the national regulator for NHS services, regularly visits care homes and Trusts across the country to assess whether services are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

Woodland View has been rated as ‘good’ since 2017 and during the most recent inspection the care home was praised in feedback given by residents and relatives who said how impressed they were with the kindness and caring attitudes shown by staff.

Inspectors highlighted how relatives and carers were all involved in the decisions made about the care of their loved one, and praised the range of activities residents could get involved in.

They also praised the availability of an on-site dysphagia specialist who supports residents who have problems swallowing food or liquids.

James Sherwin, Registered Manager at Woodland View, said: “I am so proud of the team for the amazing work they do day-in, day-out, caring for our residents at Woodland View.

“What was really special to us was the feedback from our residents and their families. For them to praise us to the inspectors means so much to us all. 

“We wouldn’t be where we are today without the efforts of each and every member of the team who have pulled together to provide the best service they possibly can and I'd like to say a huge congratulations and well done to them all.”

Clive Clarke, Interim Chief Executive at Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, said: “If your loved one is in care home, especially when the have dementia, you want the reassurance that they are being looked after and treat with the kindness and dignity they deserve.

“We are very proud of the team at Woodland View and how they truly live our values.”
