Lammas House is a delightful care home in the heart of Coventry in Warwickshire, providing residential care and respite care to our residents.
The team and residents at Lammas House are brimming with pride, having just received an ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). When you visit it is easy to see why it is the only residential care home in Coventry with this incredible rating.
Extracts from the CQC report highlights the “outstanding care” provided by the inspiring team.
"Just fabulous. The care staff have been wonderful. The care here has been outstanding. The staff just inspire so much confidence that they are looking after her." They went on to say, "The staff just know how to make a person feel so loved." Extracts from CQC report."
Another extract from the care home’s report reads:
"Staff and management were passionate about people receiving the best possible care in a loving and caring environment. They said: "This past 12 months they have worked like Trojans for me, they are wonderful. Staff are now my family and I think the world of them."
Our incredible team
At the helm of our home is manger Rukmi Silva, who has managed Lammas House since 2012. Rukmi is passionate about her residents being directly involved in how their care home is run. So much so, that she has two resident representatives who are as dedicated as she is to her residents’ views coming first.
The team are what makes Lammas House such a special place. They were shortlisted for not one, but two respected national Caring UK Awards 2018. The home went through to the grand finals of the Regional Care Home of the Year (Midlands and Wales) category. This accolade is for care homes which truly stand out in their region, with a special focus on nutrition, innovation and dignity.
Our home was also in the running for the Catering Team of the Year award. This is for teams which strive for perfection in every meal they cook. Mealtimes are certainly a real highlight of the day for the residents. At 12 noon on the dot they filter into the dining room and are ready!
Head Chef Matthew Fulleylove and Assistant Chef Kuldeep Brar create a dining experience for their residents, who enjoy lovingly prepared home-cooked food.
At breakfast, there’s anything from toast, to any item of a cooked breakfast served however they choose – everything centres on residents’ choice. Matthew and Kuldeep serve the residents, explaining what is on the menu and seeing what they fancy. A half portion of this or a different homemade sauce – nothing is too much trouble. It is a calm environment where time is taken to enjoy the food. The team also bakes cakes daily for afternoon tea. Residents are also actively involved in preparing for mealtimes and in shaping the menus too. Several of them love to help, so every day they enjoy peeling the vegetables.
Experiencing activities which enrich our residents’ lives and involving them in the community outside the care home in Coventry are extremely important. If you pop in, you will often see one of the carers playing the piano while another sings to the residents. They are often joined by young volunteers from the National Citizen Service who take part in projects and activities at the home. There has also been a rolling programme to welcome students from the University of Worcester and Birmingham City University into Lammas House.
Praised for how safe the home is in the recent CQC report, Lammas House has a ‘Say no to infection' accreditation through Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). Lammas House also has a ‘React to Red Skin’ accreditation, a campaign backed by the local authority to prevent pressure ulcers.
