Family owned and run care group, Westgate Healthcare, is celebrating after all of its care homes in Hertfordshire, Essex and Buckinghamshire that have been inspected by the CQC received Good or Outstanding ratings.
The care home operator reached the significant milestone after Hampden Hall Care Centre in Aylesbury was rated Good by the CQC in October.
Commenting on Hampden Hall, the CQC said: “People received care, support and treatment from trained staff and specialists able to meet their needs and wishes. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.”
Juliana Mensah is Hampden Hall Care Centre’s new home manager and formerly home manager for Westgate Healthcare’s St Pauls Care Centre in Hemel Hempstead, which was rated ‘Outstanding’ under her management.
She said: “I am thrilled to know that we have been awarded an ‘Overall Good’ rating! It is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team, who devote their careers to enhancing the lives of our residents.”
Sita Foxon, Director at Westgate Healthcare, added: “We are extremely proud of the whole Westgate community for their continued dedication to caring for our residents in the face of significant adversity over the last few years. This fantastic achievement is clear evidence of the passion and grit that exists in our social care sector, and we are humbled by the achievements of our teams and thank CQC for their recognition.”
