Nursing home goes from ‘inadequate’ to ‘good’ in just eight months


A Newcastle upon Tyne nursing has achieved a remarkable turning around going from ‘inadequate’ to ‘good’ in all areas in just eight months.

Park House, which is operated by Akari Care, was rated in ‘good’ in all areas this month after previously being inadequate following an inspection in November 2018

An Akari Care spokesperson said: “The journey to get here was far from easy, but the whole Akari team were focused on improving standards in Park House.”

The remarkable turnaround was led by home manager Adele Lusher, who was appointed after previously holding the post of deputy home manager at a neighbouring home.

Described as “enthusiastic and passionate” with the “right attitude, qualities and values”, Adele along with her team, was supported by Akari’s HR and Quality teams, regional manager and senior management to ensure improvements were made and the provider was able to evidence these to the regulator.
