Bethnal Green’s Silk Court and Stepney’s Westport were voted among the best, from online reviews by residents and their families.

The centres have each received an award this week from a care home online guide, based on reviews by residents themselves, their families and friends.

“Choosing a care home can be time consuming and exhausting,” reviews’ manager Amanda Hopkins said. “It’s only the residents and their families and friends who can give a real insight into what a care home is like.

“Silk Court and Westport proved they have high standard of care which puts them in the Top 20.”

The awards reflect personal experiences of the people who live there.

Silk Court recently was rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission regulator.
