Maple Tree Court care home praised by care regulator
A care home in Kidsgrove has been classed as Good in all areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Maple Tree Court on Gloucester Road were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 64 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 8th May 2019. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Claire Wright 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 Maple Tree Court 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 Maple Tree Court: One resident commented, "They are always there to help me when I need it". Another person said, "All staff are very nice, and very kind, and capable".
A staff member told us, "We all care about the people here. They are like family".
