A picture of Sanctuary Care secures hat-trick of ‘Good’ ratings from CQC

Sanctuary Care has secured a hat-trick of ‘Good’ ratings from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Bradwell Court Residential Care Home, Beechwood Residential Care Home and Meadows House Residential and Nursing Home all received the grading in their latest unannounced inspections.

Inspectors assessed Bradwell Court, in Congleton, Cheshire, and Beechwood, in Upton-upon-Severn, Worcestershire, for their levels of care, safety, leadership, effectiveness and responsiveness. Meadows House, in Greenwich, was judged on safety and leadership.

The reports highlighted how residents and relatives were positive and complimentary about the quality of care received from staff.

Sanctuary’s “person-centred” approach, ensuring residents had “maximum choice” in their day-to-day lives, was also noted by the CQC, as was the way residents and their families were involved in the decision-making processes, and encouraged to give feedback, through regular meetings.

Inspectors also observed the use of Sanctuary’s new in-house electronic care planning app kradle in operation. 

This enables staff to record and update information about a resident at the point of care and is currently being rolled out to Sanctuary Care homes across the country.

Sarah Clarke-Kuehn, Group Director – Care, said: “Our staff do a tremendous job and strive to ensure our residents receive the highest levels of person centred care, which enriches their lives.

“These reports from the CQC are further testament to this and we are delighted their work has been recognised.”
