A BARNSLEY care home as been named as one of the top 20 in Yorkshire and Humber.

Thornhill House in Darfield has won a 'Top 20' award - after it was named as one of the best in the region by leading website carehome.co.uk.

The site chose its winners by combining the number of reviews it received for each care home, the average of each of the ratings and the size of the facility.

Davina Ludlow, Director of carehome.co.uk, said: “We feel the best people to rate a care home are the residents and their families and friends. Their reviews reveal that many care homes are warm and happy places to live, where staff go that extra mile to ensure residents have a good quality of life and feel cared for.

“These awards highlight the care homes and care home groups which provide a high standard of care and we’d like to congratulate them on winning a Top 20 award.

“It’s a wonderful achievement to be recognised for being a highly recommended home and care home group by the very people you care for.”
