Care at home rated as adequate
Abbeyvale care home in Elgin has received an adequate inspection report but staff were urged to supply residents with more drink options.
The unannounced October visit by the Care Inspectorate rated only the staffing aspect as good.
“Residents were not always offered (drink) choices. For example, at lunch two types of juice were offered, while at supper only one was given at a time, with no choice,” said the report.
“Water jugs were provided in bedrooms but were not offered at mealtimes.”
Staffing levels and a robust recruitment procedure was praised after inspectors spoke to residents and workers and found evidence from rotas that the facility was never understaffed.
