In­spec­tors praise care home

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - YOURLOCAL -

A Maid­stone care home has been rated as good by the Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion (CQC) fol­low­ing an in­spec­tion of its ser­vices.

The Ash­ley Gar­dens Care Cen­tre on the Sut­ton Road is part of the Health­care Homes group.

CQC in­spec­tors vis­ited the home unan­nounced in July. Af­ter a three-day in­spec­tion, they rated the home good in four ar­eas and out­stand­ing with re­gards to re­spon­sive­ness.

They praised the “in­no­va­tive and ex­cep­tional” ac­tiv­i­ties laid on for res­i­dents.

Care at the home was per­son­cen­tred, mean­ing each res­i­dent was treated as an in­di­vid­ual, with ser­vices planned and co­or­di­nated to re­spond to their par­tic­u­lar med­i­cal con­di­tions, likes, dis­likes and per­sonal pref­er­ences.

The home cur­rently caters for 84 res­i­dents with nurs­ing needs, some with de­men­tia.

Man­ager Jo Mazza said: “I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted to have re­ceived such a glow­ing re­port.

“To be con­sid­ered out­stand­ing in terms of how we re­spond to our res­i­dents’ needs is so im­por­tant to us.”
