Gracewell Healthcare’s Gracewell of Maids Moreton care home has retained its CQC Outstanding rating.
The home in Buckinghamshire kept its place amongst the top 4% of adult social care services following an inspection in September.
Tanta Stefanescu, General Manager at Gracewell of Maids Moreton, said: “We are incredibly pleased to retain our Outstanding status. We saw the last rating as an opportunity to look at what more we can do here at Gracewell of Maids Moreton to keep raising care standards and we are really pleased to be recognised again.
“We are one big community here, so it was really pleasing to see the positive feedback from residents that they feel safe and enjoy being here.”
The home, which was previously rated Outstanding following an inspection in January 2017, was praised for its “welcoming environment” for those with physical disabilities and dementia with residents regarded as “truly partners in their care”.
The report noted the quality of care, in particular how it was personalised to suit the needs of the individual with each resident receiving a holistic assessment which takes into account their cultural, religious and lifestyle histories.
People were encouraged to live life to the full and residents contributed positive feedback to the report, with one saying, “all of the staff have been exemplary in their friendliness, professionalism and caring attitude”.
Additionally, the report pointed out that the home’s Deputy Manager had been showcased at the National Clinical awards for his project linking good hydration with fall reduction.
Anna Selby, Director of Operations at Gracewell Healthcare, said: “With under 5% of care homes achieving the top rating from the CQC, this second Outstanding rating in a row confirms Gracewell of Maids Moreton as one of the best care homes in the country.
“It is so great to see the report saying that the home provides the top level of care and we will continue to provide team members with all the tools they need to maintain the highest standards.”
Gracewell Healthcare has three Outstanding care homes: Gracewell of Maids Moreton, Geacewell of Camberley and Gracewell of Horley Park.
