THE TEAM at a care home in Stratford were “over the moon” to receive a ‘good’ rating from inspectors recently.
Lower Meadow care home was given the improved rating following an inspection from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
This is a step up from the home’s previous ‘requires improvement’ rating.
Home Manager Rachel Walker said the team had worked exceptionally hard to put strategies in place to further improve the service and were delighted to see the hard work reflected in their new official rating.
She said: “We are so proud that our home has received its overall ‘good’ rating from the CQC. At Lower Meadow care home, we focus on meeting the varying needs of every individual in a homely, comfortable and inclusive environment. We provide a variety of different activities, events and celebrations to get involved in, which encourage residents to build upon existing skills and hobbies and opportunities to try new things as well.
“The projects and activities we organise at our care home celebrate the close-knit community we have. Following the good news from our recent CQC inspection, I would like to say thank you to my brilliant team in working together to achieve a fantastic result, we are all very much looking forward to the future and all the additional things we hope to accomplish”.
