Little Acers in Nuthall

Emma would like to give a shout out to her team for an outstanding Sit and See result of 90% Positive Care, the home received last Friday.

A few of the things observed included: “The staff member knelt beside a client to talk and gave them time to process and reply to the request.”

“Staff members offered opportunities of empowerment to the clients in the form of day to day tasks they wished to complete.”

“Staff were seen to be wearing the correct PPE at all times and promoted hand hygiene with all clients.”

Emma and her team have done an amazing job, Very Well Done everyone!

 

Peaker Park Care Village in Market Harborough

A huge well done to Peaker Park Care Village for this lovely review they received on carehome.co.uk! A big shout-out to the incredible staff team there ??

“My mother required nursing care following a brain aneurysm last year, where she was unfortunately left with no mobility or communication. I am so grateful for the excellent and specialist care being provided by the nursing and care team at Peaker Park.

In addition to providing for my mother’s daily care needs, they also ensured my mother’s pre-existing medical conditions are anticipated and monitored, as she can no longer express this herself. Communication with the Care Team Leader has also been exemplary. I am always updated on what actions they are taking to ensure my mother’s wellbeing and health. This has not only been actions within the nursing home but also proactively with specialist health providers. It is reassuring to know that my mother is being looked after this well and a blessing that she is happy in her setting.”
