Aniska Lodge in Brighton Road was inspected by the Care Quality Commission on August 28.

The CQC report, which has been published, said the care home had provided an action plan after the last inspection and at this inspection improvements had been made.

It said: “People were happy with the care they received, felt relaxed with staff and told us they were treated with kindness.

“They said they felt safe, were well supported and there were sufficient staff to care for them.

“Our own observations supported this, and we saw friendly relationships had developed between people and staff. A relative told us, ‘The staff are amazing and they love my [relative]’.

“People enjoyed an independent lifestyle and told us their choices and needs were met.

“They enjoyed the food, drink and activities that took place daily. One person told us, ‘The quality of food is good’. A relative added, ‘They have so many outside entertainers who come in, animals, musicians, pet therapy as well as parties regularly which relatives are invited to’.

The care home was approached for a response.
