New reports filed by the Care Quality Commission have praised two organisations for delivering good standards of care.
The healthcare watchdog has praised a Weston-super-Mare care home for its ‘supportive’ and ‘relaxed’ approach.
Birnbeck House provides accommodation and care for thirteen people with learning disabilities.
The home, which is owned by Leonard Cheshire Disability, received a ‘good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission.
A report states that staff working there are attentive and caring towards the patients.
“Staff were deeply committed to providing additional sources of enjoyment for people and had engaged in several fundraising efforts,” the CQC reflected.
Workers at the hospital are currently raising money to build a sensory garden for their patients to enjoy.
Leonard Cheshire Birnbeck House service manager Sarah Granger was extremely pleased about the results.
“We are delighted to receive this good rating in the CQC report. I would like to thank all of our dedicated and hard-working staff. We enjoy making people’s lives as full and enjoyable as possible.”
Meanwhile, a Kettering care home has been also given a rating of ‘good’ by the healthcare watchdog.
The Care Quality Commission reported that Active Support Service Ltd is good in all areas.
Active Support provides care for those with dementia, learning disabilities and physical disabilities.
“The provider had values and a clear vision that was person centred and focused on enabling people to live at home. All staff demonstrated a commitment to providing a service for people which met their individual needs. People had positive relationships with staff. People were protected from harm arising from poor practice or abuse; there were clear safeguarding procedures in place for care staff to follow if they were concerned about people’s safety,” the CQC reported noted.
And the commission was particularly effusive about the workforce at the organisation.
“Staff understood the need to protect people from harm and knew what action they should take if they had any concerns.”
The CQC was established in 2009 to regulate and inspect health and social care services in England.
Until 31st March 2009, regulation of health and adult social care in England was carried out by the Healthcare Commission and the Commission for Social Care Inspection.
