A PENSNETT care facility which helps rehabilitate people to return home from hospital has been rated as 'good' by care inspectors.

Tiled House, which is run by Dudley Council, was found to be performing well in all areas of assessment by the Care Quality Commission.

The home, based on Tiled House Lane, provides short term recuperation and rehabilitation for people are well enough to leave hospital, but need more help before returning home.

It was assessed for its safety, effectiveness, care, response and leadership.

Inspectors found that residents were safe and were supported by care staff, while relatives were able to share their views with staff and were involved in planning their care.

Matt Bowsher, director of adult social care, said: "We’re really pleased with the result of the inspection, which acknowledges the positive contribution staff have in the re-ablement of the people staying there.

"Tiled House offers a really important facility in our borough, giving people the opportunity to take time to rehabilitate, building their strength and confidence before they go home and hopefully reducing the likelihood of them needing a hospital admittance in the future."

Residents at the centre receive support from physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nurses so they can continue to live independently.
