A BARNSLEY care home has been lauded as one of the best in the country, having bagged a ‘triple crown’ of top awards.

Dearnevale is believed to be the UK’s only care home to hold the highest regulator grade of ‘outstanding’ from the Care Quality Commission, accreditation from the Huntington’s Disease Association and a ten-out-of-ten score on carehome.co.uk.

The 40-bedroom Grimethorpe home supports adults living with complex care needs arising from neuro-disabilities such as Huntington’s, mental health conditions and physical disabilities.
