A care home in Thorpe, Wakefield, Daisy Vale House, has been rated ‘good’ overall and in every care category by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the health and social care watchdog.
The report references conversations residents had with inspectors. A resident said, “The staff are really good and do everything I ask of them and more.” Another resident said, “I am happy with the care and support I receive.” A relative said that staff “had been marvellous” in supporting their family member. The CQC summarised by saying, “People were relaxed and comfortable in the presence of staff throughout their visit.”
Inspectors saw that there were a range of activities that suited the needs and interests of people who live at the home. Residents regularly go to the cinema, take part in walking clubs and watch live football matches.
The report suggests that residents have as much independence and freedom as possible, and many work or do activities of their choosing during the day. Residents personalise their rooms with ornaments, and things of personal significance.
Daisy Vale House is managed by Priory Adult Care, a new division within the Priory Group. It brings together two Priory adult care divisions, Craegmoor and Amore Care. The home supports people with learning disabilities. It is located in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Adele Taylor, Registered Manager, said: “My team are so delighted with this report and the CQC’s findings. However, I would like to give the most thanks to our residents and their relatives for working with us so closely to create such a warm and friendly home.”
James Willis, CEO of Priory Adult Care, said: “This is a great achievement for everyone who works at the home. I would like to wish the staff, residents and their relatives all the best going forwards.”
