Bloomfield Court care home praised by care regulator
A care home in Wellingborough has been classed as Good in all five inspected areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Staff at Anchor’s Bloomfield Court were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 47 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 10th October 2019. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Anella Shahid 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 Bloomfield 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 examples of high standards of care at Bloomfield Court.
A visiting healthcare professional commented, "Staff are always making conversation with people, care is not task orientated, I have no concerns at all." One staff member said, “I am proud of our team and we are making it into a good home."
A resident confirmed, "Living here is lovely, I'd rather stop here than go anywhere else."
