Vida Healthcare’s Vida Hall care home has gained its second CQC Outstanding since its opening in 2013.
The Harrogate-based, dementia care specialist’s residential care home joined the top 4% of adult social care services following an inspection in October and November.
James Rycroft, Managing Director at Vida Healthcare, said: “The commitment of the team at Vida Hall, highlighted in the inspection report, is what makes our care homes outstanding. We look for kind, caring and compassionate people who value the work that we do and you can see that in the choice and control the residents have over their lives.
“We now have an ‘Outstanding’ rating for both our homes, Vida Hall and Vida Grange, and I’m looking forward to continuing this model which has proved to be such a success in our latest development, Vida Court, which is due to open in spring 2021.”
The inspection highlighted the “exceptional dementia care” received by residents and the promotion of education-based practice which “fostered high quality, person-centred care” throughout the service.
Vida Healthcare said its care plans that incorporate the specialist knowledge of staff and needs of every resident, regular staff training, and careful planning of the care home environment to meet the specialist care needs of residents, were a major contributor to its success.
Wendy Korcu, Registered Home Manager at Vida Hall, said: “I’m so proud that Vida Hall has achieved Outstanding. It’s an honour that my team has received the recognition they deserve for dedication, compassion and the skills they demonstrate every day.”
