Anchor's Manor Court care home in Plymouth has been classed as Outstanding by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Manor Court on Blandford Road were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 37 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 25 and 29 September 2017. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate. Less than 1% of care homes in England in 2016 were classed as Outstanding.
Manor Court Manager Rachael McGarry 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 Manor Court an outstanding care home but to be given such praise from the regulator is wonderful. I am very proud of the care team at Manor Court and the first class service provided; including 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 an outstanding 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 Manor Court:
The registered manager led a visible, committed, caring team to provide excellent, holistic care. Staff exhibited an exceptionally kind and compassionate attitude towards people. Relatives reiterated people's views telling us, "A wonderful home I'd recommend to anyone. The home was recommended and every bit as
good as I was told. It's very caring, staff all so thoughtful."
