Care at home rated as ad­e­quate

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

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.
