A Scottish care home has been rated ‘very good’ for helping people get the most out of life by the Care Inspectorate.
In a report completed in June, the Care Inspectorate also rated Anavo Group’s Spiers Care Home in Beith as ‘good’ for dignity, compassion, respect, care responsiveness and infection control.
Home Manager, Alison Ravandi, praised the tremendous effort made by all her staff to achieve the rating, saying: “We are delighted with the fantastic CIS report.
“Every member of staff has contributed to this excellent outcome, going above and beyond to provide high quality care throughout the pandemic. Our staff has shown dedication and compassion in order to provide a caring environment for residents and peace of mind for their families.”
Inspectors found that relatives spoke highly of the effort made by staff to keep them informed daily of the wellbeing of their loved one, and that residents reported they liked the home’s staff, activities and food. When interviewed, one relative said their family member was the “happiest they have been in a long time”.
An Anavo spokesperson said quality of care and invigorating best practice was at the forefront of its strategy and this latest CIS rating was testament to the group’s commitment to their mission, with 90% of its homes rated ‘good’.
