Rose Court care home in Rotherhithe has been classed as Good in all five areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Rose Court on Lower Road were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 48 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 15th and 28th September 2017. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Rose Court Manager Maheshwaree Aryan 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 Rose 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 Rose Court: “It’s lovely, I feel safe here.” “Staff were observed being supportive, kind and helpful when assisting people with their meals.” One person said, "The staff are very good, they're marvellous.”
