Residents and staff at Ashwood Nursing Home in Spalding are all smiles after a glowing report from Government social care inspectors.

Communication between residents and staff at the purpose-built care home on Spalding Common, as well as the respect and integrity with which people are treated, were highlighted by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) after a random inspection three weeks ago.

The home was judged fully compliant with all of the CQC’s standards for social care, confirming a previous inspection report published in May 2012 which said Ashwood was “comfortable” and that its residents were “well cared for.”

Manager Daniela Phillips said: “We did extremely well and receiving fully compliant status giuves our dedicated team of staff members the recognition they deserve for their hard work.

“At the end of his visit, the CQC inspector said Ashwod was a home, not an institution, and he was quite impressed to see that everyone was quite happy, relaxed, comfortable and well looked after.”

Ashwood was first registered as a care home almost 15 years ago and became part of the Country Court Care group, which has four care homes in Spalding, Holbeach and Market Deeping, in May 2007.

Daniela said: “We work tirelessly to maintain and increase our impeccable standards, so we are thrilled by the CQC inspector’s feedback.”
