Residents at White Rose Lodge are celebrating after earning a high rating in a nationwide survey of care home residents.

The nationwide survey gives residents a voice, putting their care at the heart of 
understanding more about how well care homes perform. More than 20,000 residents in 963 care homes across the UK took part.

The results show the Bridlington care home was given an overall performance rating (OPR) score of 890, out of 1,000.

Each care home was given a score based on resident feedback across four broad themes; Staff and Care, Home Comforts, Choice and Having a Say, and Quality of Life. White Rose Lodge Care Home achieved scores of 949 for Quality of Life and 925 for Choice and Having a Say, meaning the residents of White Rose Lodge highly rate the standard of care they receive for Quality of Life and Choice and Having a Say.

Dariusz Orszulewski, Care Manager at White Rose Lodge, said: “It’s great that our residents value the care they receive at White Rose Lodge. Most of our scores across the four themes are really positive, which shows that life for our residents is happy and fulfilling.

“While we’re really pleased with our scores, we obviously want to get even better and the survey helps us do that by giving us direct resident feedback. Every care home resident should be able to speak up about their care and this is what the Your Care Rating survey does – it gives them a voice.”

The survey was compiled by leading research company Ipsos MORI with input from the care home operators taking part, plus the National Care Forum and Care England.

All of this year’s results for every care home surveyed are displayed on the Your Care Rating website (www.yourcarerating.org).
