Udal Garth care home in North Road, Torpoint, Cornwall, has been praised by independent inspectors for the quality of care it offers to residents with learning disabilities and autism.
In its latest report, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which regulates health and care services, praised Udal Garth for being “friendly”, “supportive”, “understanding people’s needs well” and encouraging residents to “widen their horizons”.
The CQC said: “People were supported by staff that knew them and understood their needs.” The report praises the range of activities on offer to residents and how the home makes use of all the local amenities. Two residents regularly attend a local music club. Residents are also encouraged and supported when visiting local shops, so that they maintain an all-important degree of independence.
Udal Garth was praised for its use of ‘Your Voice’ meetings, where residents have the opportunity to express their points of view on all aspects of how the home is run and what they would like to do and see there.
Priory Adult Care (formerly Craegmoor) was praised for its recruitment process and the high level of training that members of its staff receive. Welcoming the CQC’s report, service manager David Rowe said: “Everyone at Udal Garth will continue to work hard to ensure that the individual remains at the heart of everything we do. We want to offer our residents as much independence as possible, and we are pleased that the inspectorate recognises that this as a key part of our ethos.”
