Stockport care home celebrates second Outstanding rating

Dystlegh III

Dystlegh Grange care home in Stockport has received its second Outstanding rating from the CQC.

The residential care home, which serves up to 29 elderly people, joined the top 3.5% of adult social care services following an inspection in June.

Registered Manager Brian Robinson said: “Dystlegh Grange is a residential care home community that attracts those of us who would like or need more support, but most importantly would like to continue having the personal control, privacy and status of living in one’s own home.  This is somewhere we can be ourselves!”

Helena Dennett, Head of Adult Social Care Inspection, said: “We found this service had a fantastic attitude and further improved on its previous Outstanding features, spreading learning and experience into more aspects of the home.”

“The staff and leadership were always looking to find ways to problem solve and evaluate their performance so further improvements could be made, to benefit the people they supported.  The care provided continued to be extremely person-centred and had a warm and inviting atmosphere.”

“An excellent result for a service that has not only sustained an Outstanding rating but improved on it.  Congratulations to everyone at the home.”

The CQC said healthcare professionals had spoken extremely highly of the home and how it was able to support people to achieve excellent outcomes.

“Everything in the home was led by people living there and staff saw their role as supporting people to live their life any a way they were happy with,” the report said.

“One staff member summed it up, ‘Here is much more than a care home.  It is a collection of people’s individual homes.’ ”
