A SHEFFIELD care home is celebrating after achieving a “Good” rating from industry watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The Laurels and The Limes Care Home, on Manchester Road, received the rating across all five of the CQC’s inspection categories.
They were rated “Good” for safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led – giving them the second highest overall rating available.
In their report, following an unannounced inspection of the home, the CQC said: “Overall we saw the premises were clean and well maintained.
“People and their relatives told us they enjoyed the food served at The Laurels and The Limes.
“People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible.
“Positive and supportive relationships had been developed between people, their relatives, and staff. People told us they were treated with dignity and respect and we saw this throughout the day of the inspection.
“There was a range of activities available to people living at The Laurel and The Limes. People were supported to engage in activities that were important to them.
“People, their relatives and staff were regularly asked for their views of the service. Concerns and suggestions were considered and acted upon.
“There were effective systems in place to monitor and improve the quality of the service provided.”
Louise Spooner, home manager at The Laurels Care Home, said: “Everyone at The Laurels and The Limes are absolutely delighted to be awarded a “Good” rating by the CQC in all five categories of their inspection report.
“The staff at both homes work incredibly hard to provide the highest level of care for our residents, whether expert dementia care at The Laurels or traditional nursing and residential care at The Limes.”
