Merevale House Residential Home in Atherstone, Warwickshire has been rated Outstanding by the CQC.
The home, which is split into three buildings, provides care for up to 31 people, including up to 14 people living with dementia.
Home Manager Tina Booton told Care Home Professional: “We are over the moon to achieve Outstanding at Merevale House. We all work incredibly hard every day to make every moment matter to people living at Merevale. We strongly believe in Active Co-existence which is our way of living and working together. The fabulous outcome from the CQC inspection makes us believe this really does work well.”
Tina said the home’s achievement was a fitting tribute to its founder Anne Fretwell who sadly died in February.
The CQC commented: “People were extremely happy with the quality of the care and support they received. They described their care as being given in a way they preferred and they were supported to be as independent as possible.
“People were supported extremely well with their personal hobbies and interests and to go out when they wanted to. Staff used their knowledge about people’s past to create opportunities to engage with people in a positive way and make new memories for the person and their relatives.
“The culture of the home was very positive and staff embraced the provider’s values. People described all of the staff as being calm and relaxed and saw them as equals.”
