Kimberley Court care home in Newquay has been classed as Good overall by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Kimberley Court in Kimberley Close were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 36 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 2 January 2018. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Manager Michelle Wray said everyone at the home was thrilled because they had worked so hard to maintain high standards of care.
She said: “We have worked hard to make Kimberley Court a good care home but to be given such praise from the regulator is wonderful. We are proud of the care we provide, of the meals which are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and of the wide variety of meaningful activities enjoyed by our residents.
“Anchor has a specialist dementia care team so we also know how to care for people living with the condition so they lead as fulfilling a life as possible.
“We welcome such rigorous inspections and clear ratings so older people and their families can see which homes are the best in the country. We’re so pleased to be classed as a good care home - we’ll be celebrating this success.”
The CQC inspection report, which can be found on the regulator’s website, highlighted the following examples of high standards of care at Kimberley Court: “I feel safe because everybody is so friendly." "The food is fantastic."
Relatives told us, "The quality of the service and kindness is excellent.”
