A Huddersfield care home has been praised by industry watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an unannounced visit from inspectors.
Aden Mount Care Home in Perseverance Street, Primrose Hill, was given an overall rating of “good” in their latest inspection report.
Inspectors spoke to almost two dozen residents, relatives and staff members and reviewed care records and staff files before giving the home a green light on two key questions covered in the report – is the service safe and is the service well-led?
The care home’s staff received high praise, with the report stating: “Staff knew people well and were knowledgeable regarding people’s care needs and risks.
“One relative told us: ‘Staff are very knowledgeable and on the ball’ and ‘the staff know [name] well. I was impressed a carer knew all about [name]’s medication.’
“They [staff] were caring, respectful and attentive. Feedback from relatives included: ‘They know [name] very well. They know her quirks,’ and ‘the staff are excellent.’
“People were involved in their care planning. They were offered a choice and supported to make decisions to enhance their quality of life. One relative told us ‘[name]’s health has improved since living at the home.’”
Angela Mellor, home manager at Aden Mount Care Home, also received praise from residents and their relatives in the report.
Angela said: “We are absolutely delighted with our latest CQC inspection report. The report reflects the hard work and dedication of our staff, ensuring our residents have a safe, caring, comfortable and enjoyable place to live.”
