A care home in Mawdesley, Lancashire is celebrating after receiving a positive inspection score following a visit from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Stocks Hall Mawdesley care home has been rated ‘good’ by the CQC in all five assessment areas following an unannounced inspection in September 2018.

Faye Cooper, registered manager, said: “We are so pleased with our recent CQC inspection and we have worked very hard to achieve this. Our team at Stocks Hall Mawdesley is exceptional.

“We have thanked all our team for helping to implement the changes we have made over the past three years and for providing our residents with excellent care and companionship, we couldn’t have achieved anything without them.

“We are constantly thinking of new ideas and ways in which we can make our home even better. With this in mind, our next target is an outstanding rating.”

The CQC report states: “During our inspection we toured the premises and found the home to be warm, comfortable and clean throughout. It was safe, well maintained and designed to a high standard.

“People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.”

Stocks Hall Mawdesley is the sixth home to be built by the well-established company Stocks Hall Care Homes Ltd. The home can care for up to 42 people providing accommodation for people who require personal or nursing care.

Inspectors commented highly on the standard of care provided and the quality of the staff team.
