Two care homes have been rated good by the health watchdog.

The Care Quality Commission visited Bedford’s Manton Heights Care Centre, off Manton Lane, and Lansglade House in Lansdowne Road last month.

Both venues care for people over the age of 65 including those living with dementia.

The care homes were rated as good across the board for the service on offer being safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

Deputy chief inspector for adult social care in the central region Sue Howard said: “People are entitled to services which provide safe, effective, compassionate and high quality care. If that is what we find on inspection we give the service a rating of good or outstanding.

“Where we find that services are not good enough, we will give a rating of requires improvement or inadequate. If we find that a service requires improvement, we will expect them to provide us with a full plan setting out how they will address the issue. We will share our findings with local commissioners, and we will return in due course to check that the required improvements have been made.”
