SHEFFIELD residential care home Paddock Hill has won the praise of the Care Quality Commission.                                  

The Gleadless home, one of the chain of properties operated throughout the city by not for profit organisation Sheffcare, was visited by inspectors from the CQC, the independent regulator of health and social care for England.

The home was rated good in four major areas - safety, caring, levels of response and leadership.

“People had access to a range of healthcare professionals to maintain their health,” the report said.

“A varied and nutritious diet was provided that took  into account dietary needs and preferences.

“We also saw people participate in a range of daily activities both in and outside the home which were meaningful and promoted independence.”

The report added that residents received care in a timely manner and that staff were visible around the home, providing support and talking with dignity and respect.

“As ever, we are always pleased to welcome CQC inspectors into our homes,” said Sheffcare Chief Executive Belinda Black.

“There was praise for the Sheffcare team and their approach to the job of providing excellent levels of care, which is what Sheffcare is all about.

“We are delighted that the CQC have once again recognised the level of commitment displayed by all our staff and heard for themselves what our residents have to say about the sort of care we provide - because that is the greatest praise we can receive.”
