Ayr care home praised after unannounced inspection
A Sanctuary Care home in Ayrshire is celebrating after receiving a ‘Very Good’ rating from the Care Inspectorate.
Glenfairn House Nursing Home in Ayr’s Racecourse Road was given the rating for how well its responsive management supports people’s wellbeing.
The home, which provides care for up to 75 people, was also rated ‘Good’ for how well its care and support is planned.
Inspectors made an unannounced visit to Glenfairn House on 31 January and six areas marked for improvement after a visit in February 2019 have now been met.
The report said: “Overall, people expressed high levels of satisfaction with the quality of the service.”
Glenfairn House was also praised for having “respectful and compassionate” staff who were “kind and patient in their approach”.
Residents benefited from a beautifully maintained garden, enhanced by the recent addition of a large summer house to accommodate additional social events.
Home manager Alice Thomas said: “The report is very positive and captures all of the hard work that has gone in to push our service forward.
“We do all we can to provide a family feel, warmth and a sense of community that enriches the lives of our residents.”
Sanctuary Care took over Glenfairn House on 10 January, three weeks before the inspection took place. It is one of 18 homes Sanctuary Care operates in Scotland.
