Landemere care home praised by care regulator
Landemere care home in Sinfin has been again classed as Good by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Staff at Anchor’s Landemere in Inveraray Close were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 41 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 10th January 2019. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Lucy Carr 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 Landemere a good care home but to be given such praise from the regulator is wonderful. We are proud of the meals which are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and the high levels of training and support our staff receive.
“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 Landemere: One person said, "Staff are very kind and helpful. I think they are very well-trained." A resident commented, "All the food is nice, I've never sent anything back."
A visiting trainer told us, "I love coming here, it is such an upbeat happy home. All the staff are welcoming and say hello to me as I go around. It's lovely to see staff talking with the residents, they are so kind and caring, and the home is very inclusive because the residents are at the heart of everything."
