Westfield House care home for adults with long term mental health problems in South Yorkshire has been rated 'good' overall for the quality of care it provides by the independent health and social care regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The service was rated 'good' for all categories within the overall rating.
In the report following the inspection at Westfield House in Rotherham, the CQC praised staff for the ways in which they were able to deal with vulnerable residents as well as the systems and safeguarding processes in place. Staff were also commended for their commitment in helping residents to uphold a balanced and healthy diet, encouraging them to become involved with their daily food choices.
The aim of staff at Westfield House is to enable residents to live as independently as possible in the future, by providing the right level of support to allow people to learn and develop necessary skills. Each person at Westfield House has their own Person Centred Plan which outlines their goals and aspirations. Individuals make their own decisions about their care and support where possible, with input from key workers and family members too.
Westfield House also offers a wide range of activities which are managed by a full-time activities co-ordinator. These include day trips, theatre visits, socialising, meals out and annual holidays as well as help with attending college, work placements and drop in centres.
Wendy Foulstone, Registered Manager, said: "We are thrilled with the outcome of our latest CQC inspection as we have all worked incredibly hard to ensure that are residents are comfortable and happy in their day-to-day lives. Everyone who has been involved in creating a comfortable and encouraging environment in our home should feel very proud to have been recognised positively by the CQC during this inspection."
