Inspectors have rated a north Norfolk care home as outstanding.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) gave the top rating to Munhaven Care Home, which is based in Mundesley.
Inspectors made an unannounced visit on in June 12, 2019, where they were rated as outstanding in four of the five key areas.
Outstanding ratings were given in the effectiveness, caring, responsive and well-led aspects of the report, and good for the safe element of the report.
The report highlights how staff delivered "extremely sensitive and compassionate care" and how staff developed "open and trusting relationships with people and their relatives, maximising the benefit of the care provided."
Alison Roberts, NorseCare's manager at Munhaven, said: "I'm very lucky, I have a great job, supported by a wonderful team who feel valued and supported in their roles.
"We are all motivated to achieve the best possible outcomes and quality of life for the people who use Munhaven. I'm so proud of everyone who has made this recognition possible."
