A NATIONAL care watchdog has given Queen's Court in Dedworth Road its seal of approval.

The inspectors from the Care Quality Commission turned up unannounced at the Windsor care home, had a good luck round and gave it 'good' ratings in all five of its official categories.

The range of activities on offer was praised by the inspectors, as well as the home’s general involvement within the wider community.

Three schools regularly visit the home for intergenerational activities with the residents. One resident said: “I like it when the school children come in and we read to each other.”

The inspectors commended the tailored approach to care offered by Queen’s Court to the residents. On top of offering personalised care plans, team members also adapted methods to the residents and their needs. A resident said: “They walk with me because they know I don’t feel safe on my own.”

In addition, team members support residents to complete a 'life story' book, in order to initiate conversations and reassure those living with dementia or memory difficulties.

The report also praised the home’s responsiveness to feedback from residents and relatives and the positive culture created by the home manager Anthony Browne.

Commenting on the ‘good’ rating, Anthony Browne said: “Creating a welcoming home-from-home feel, and making sure every resident receives the best possible care is our absolute priority. Everyone here at Queen’s Court works incredibly hard to provide residents with compassionate, person-centred care and I’m delighted that our efforts have been recognised by the CQC’s inspectors."
