Two East Riding Care Homes Receive ‘Outstanding’ By CQC


The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has awarded two care homes in the East Riding of Yorkshire the ‘Outstanding’ rating following recent inspections.

The Old School House and Farndale House Residential Homes were both visited in November 2019 and the subsequent reports published this year awarded them with the rear ‘Outstanding’ rating.

The Old School House is a residential care home providing personal care to 33 older people. People who live at this home receive support with complex needs associated with their diagnosis of dementia.

The home received ‘Outstanding’ in four out of the five areas and ‘Good’ in the other.

The report said:

‘The environment at the Old School House was exceptional. Further improvements had been made to enhance the facilities for people to meet their daily life needs. The service was particularly suited to people with dementia. Staff training, support and innovative working followed, and challenged best practice to help people overcome fears and anxieties. The provider had active links, sharing information and best practice with leading experts in dementia care."

The full report can be seen here:


Farndale House is a residential care home providing personal care for up to three people who have a learning disability.

Farndale was ‘Outstanding’ in three of the five areas with ‘Good’ in the remaining three.

‘The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.’

We were delighted to see a care home in the East Riding has been awarded a rating of Outstanding.

We last visited The Old School House in Beverley in October 2017 to carry out an Enter and View visit, at the time our observations were

‘The Old School House is an impressive care home providing individualised care to a group of people with advanced dementia and their families’.
