A COLWYN BAY home has been chosen as one of the Top 20 on a reviews guide website dedicated to care homes.

Redcroft Residential Housing has been selected by its residents and their families as one of the best in Wales on carehome.co.uk.

According to that website, there are 1,036 homes in Wales. The top 20 on there, including Redcroft, have all received an award from the website as a result.

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

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of carehome.co.uk, said: “We now have over 150,000 reviews of care homes on carehome.co.uk so we are able to give people a real insight in what a care home and its staff are like. Our reviews reveal the quality of their activities, nutrition and hydration as well as if the care home is value for money and the standard of their facilities.

“Choosing a care home can be time consuming and daunting so we hope our awards which are given to the highest rated homes will help make the search easier.

“Reviews of Redcroft Care Home show they provide a high standard of care and we would like to congratulate them on being a Top 20 care home in Wales! It is such a big achievement to be named as a top-rated care home by the residents receiving the care as well as their family and friends.”

Kelly Williams, Acting Manager of Redcroft Care Home, said: "A true recognition towards our passion for care.

“It is truly a joint effort from every individual at Redcroft, including our care users, staff, relatives and management. We value this recognition as a milestone towards our long term vision, and thank everyone to make this happen.

"I am very proud to be part of Redcroft, all our efforts have paid off".
