A healthcare watchdog has praised a Weston-super-Mare care home for its ‘supportive’ and ‘relaxed’ approach.

Birnbeck House, in St Pauls Road, provides accommodation and care for 13 people with learning disabilities.

The home, which is owned by Leonard Cheshire Disability, received a ‘good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The report says the staff are attentive and caring towards the patients.

It also said: “Staff were deeply committed to providing additional sources of enjoyment for people and had engaged in several fundraising efforts.”

The staff are currently raising money to build a sensory garden for their patients to enjoy.

Leonard Cheshire Birnbeck House service manager Sarah Granger said: “We are delighted to receive this good rating in the CQC report.

“I would like to thank all of our dedicated and hard-working staff. We enjoy making people’s lives as full and enjoyable as possible.”
