‘Care, comfort and companionship’ makes up the ethos at an ‘outstanding’ Sidmouth care home.

Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission paid a visit to Malden House, in Sidford Road, earlier this year.

The 19-bed home, which cares for older people and those living with dementia, was awarded four ‘outstanding’ stars for being well-led, responsive, caring and effective, as well as a ‘good’ rating for its safety.

The home is part of the Hartford Care family.

A company spokeswoman said the overall ‘outstanding’ rating was underpinned by their core values of care, comfort and companionship - the ethos.

Agnieszka Orlowska, the home’s registered manager, said: “I am very proud of the whole team because they have all contributed to this achievement to provide care, comfort and companionship in an environment that is safe and happy for all.”
