Limegrove care home praised by care regulator
A care home in East Horsley has been classed as Good in all areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Staff at Anchor’s Limegrove in St Martin’s Close were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 55 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 22nd July 2019. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Sudhir Sijapati said everyone at the home was thrilled because they had worked so hard to maintain high standards of care.
He said: “We have worked hard to make Limegrove 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 Limegrove: One person commented, "I have to compliment our chef. He did melt in the mouth beef yesterday." A resident said, "The staff here are so caring and lovely. They really are so sweet."
A professional advised, "Staff are really caring and they know people and adapt their care appropriately. It's one of the nicest homes I come in to. Staff are really attentive and if you notice anything, they want to know about it."
