Care inspectors praise ‘good’ care at Westbury Lodge
A care home for adults with learning disabilities has been praised by care home inspectors for the respectful and dignified way it looks after residents.
The Care Quality Commission said the home was a safe, caring and supportive environment where staff supported the residents, and treated them with dignity and respect.
Inspectors said that ‘people’s care needs had been assessed and their emotional, health and social care needs were considered’ and residents ‘liked the staff who supported them and the positive relationships they had formed’.
In an interview with one of the residents, an inspector was told: ‘I feel very safe living here’ and ‘the staff are marvellous, all of them’.
Residents of the home are actively encouraged to pursue their interests and take part in arts and crafts, gardening and baking. They also have the opportunity to attend college, with access to various courses.
Sarah Hughes, Chief Executive Officer of Craegmoor, said: “Westbury Lodge is a wonderful home where residents enjoy living. The staff always do their utmost to ensure the needs of the residents are put first and are provided a safe and happy home. This positive report is a testament to their dedication and I’m very proud of the work they have done.”
