Welcome to our Spring 2017 edition which celebrates our focus on nursing care. It is getting harder for nursing care operators to consistently evidence quality delivery to the satisfaction of our regulator. As a result, it is a great achievement for us to be able to report that all of our homes to be inspected by the CQC have now been rated ‘good’.
That’s 19 homes out of 20. This success was confirmed with the latest inspection report of our Fernhill dementia care home in Longham, Dorset.
Our year-old Chichester home, Wellington Grange, has yet to have an inspection but we are confident it will do well too. You can read more about this home in our story on its first 12 months of operation.
We also include a dedicated feature on nursing explaining how we help our nurses continually develop their skills.
We are a family-owned business that offers the highest standards of elderly residential, nursing and dementia care and it’s very important for families to know that their loved ones’ care needs will be met by our professional and experienced in-home team of nurses and care staff.
Too many care home operators are stepping away from providing nursing care, deeming it too difficult.
We have always bucked the norm and risen to challenges. Nursing is at the heart of what we do and that’s why we are continuing to invest in it. What our staff think of our approach, and how successful we are in aiming to be one integrated team, is shown in a further story.
