Staff and residents at NorseCare’s Cranmer House residential care home in Fakenham, are celebrating after being named in a list of top 20 care homes in the UK.

The carehome.co.uk 2014 Top 20 Awards highlights the most recommended homes in each region and are based on recommendations from residents, families and friends of residents. Cranmer House was second in the East of England and 13th overall in the UK, based on recommendations received during 2013.

Cranmer House provides short-term care for up to 15 residents and up to five re-ablement places helping people with safe discharges from hospitals.

The home’s recommendations since April 2013 averaged 9.9 out of 10.

Karen Knight, managing director at NorseCare, said: “It’s always lovely to be told of any award, but to get an award based on recommendations by our residents, their families and friends is very satisfying. Cranmer is a unique home for NorseCare in that residents generally stay for short term care, so its very important for us to give them the same care that we provide to residents in our other homes.”
