Sanford House Nursing Home been awarded a Good rating in its latest inspection from the Care Quality Commission.
The CQC noted the design of the Caring Homes-operated nursing home as a part of the reason for the high rating with its handrails, bright murals, sensory garden and accessible layout all meeting the specific needs of the residents.
Sanford House’s staff was praised for their compassion, respect and kindness which led to positive feedback from the families of residents.
The food was also singled out for praise by the CQC who noted that the home’s staff support residents by encouraging them to eat and drink enough while also providing tasting days to help them try new foods.
Sanford House manager, Joan Auton, said of the news: At Caring Homes we want to ensure that our homes are just that – caring homes. We are all really pleased that the CQC inspectors have recognised the positive open culture and our expectation that residents and relatives always come first.
We are delighted with our second consecutive ‘Good’ rating, this is down to the fantastic team here and great support from senior managers and colleagues across Caring Homes.”
