Annesley Lodge care home praised by care regulator
A care home in Hucknall has been classed as Good by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Staff at Anchor’s Annesley Lodge on Annesley 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 12th June 2019. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Jolene Anderson 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 Annesley Lodge 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 Annesley Lodge: A relative commented, "Nothing is too much trouble, you can ask for anything and staff help, I'm happy with all the staff.” ‘The cook and kitchen staff worked with care staff to provide a well-balanced diet for people, and during our visit offered support throughout mealtimes to ensure people's dietary preferences were catered for.’
One resident said, "It's a very nice place to be. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The staff always look after you and are always there if you need them."
