A Very Successful CQC report at Alexandra House

We are delighted and proud to announce that Alexandra House Care Home at Eastwood received excellent results from their recent CQC inspection, which assesses how we are meeting their standards.


 The CQC inspection looks at the level of care and support we offer our residents across a range of principles.

The CQC monitors the essential standards of quality and safety and covers 16 standards ranging from appropriate care, safety, staffing, and nutrition through to equipment suitability.


Alexandra House were commended for their infection control & tissue viability and they received a 'glowing report'  for their attention to dignity.

Showing a commitment to nutrition and hydration in conjunction with a new range of menus has aided the focus on resident’s dietary needs.

‘Alex House’ has an impressive track record in assessing resident’s needs and we are especially good at providing a ‘home from home’ with daily prepared fresh food.

We are also tops at laundry - but we weren't measured on that!

Said Care Home Manager – Marie Duke-Parker

Eastgate Care Announce Plans for Further Care Home

Nottingham based Eastgate Care announced a new partnership with Barclays to assist with its strategic growth plans which include the construction of a further care home.

Eastgate Care, which already operates Park House, Alexandra House, Melbourne House and Belle Vue Lodge around the Nottingham area, is now in the process of constructing a further purpose built 66 bed care home in Ilkeston. The construction will provide accommodation offering respite, nursing, dementia, palliative and residential care. The company are also upgrading the facilities at Park House. 

James Day, Managing Director of  Eastgate Care said: “Care for the elderly and dementia sufferers has never been more important and with an ageing population, it’s important we can provide the right level of care this vulnerable sector of society deserves. Barclays has provided a suite of banking products that support our strategic aim into the medium term.”

Some of the new funding was provided through the Government-backed ‘Funding for Lending’ scheme which provides customers with a cashback lump sum upon drawdown of the loan.

Jon Johnson, Barclays Relationship Director commented: “This is a great example of well managed business thriving in the current climate and investing for future growth. The funding we provided under the ‘Funding for Lending’ scheme will provide the company with a lump sum cashback which will enable the company to plan with confidence going forward.”


Eastgate Care now employs over 200 staff across the four sites and will be recruiting further staff upon completion of the new home.
