A CARE home has been given a clean bill of health just four months after it was branded "inadequate"  by the Care Quality Commission.

An inspection in November found breaches relating to care and welfare, infection control, nutrition and hydration, maintenance and staff training.

In the latest findings the nursing home which caters for up to 54 people, was judged "good" in the five major sections ranging from management to caring.

As a thank you to his staff, the owner Malcolm Haigh, held a celebratory party to thank them for their "dedication and hard work over the past four months."

The CQC report reveals that Anley Hall had made major improvements and there was now "strong teamwork with a more stable staff team" and was giving caring service.

And people had given a positive feedback about the service and how it had improved over recent months.

The authors of the report said: "Staff new people well. We noted staff approached and spoke with people in a kind and respectful way.

"People's dignity and rights were promoted and staff empowered people to maintain their independence, be involved in their own care and contribute to the running of the home."

A new quality assurance system was in place and there was improvement in staff morale. Staff also felt positive about the future of the business.

They also paid tribute to how the new manager had embraced the leadership and guidance role and worked with staff to make sure the service was meeting people's needs.

The recent Dementia Awareness Week staff held a pyjama party and Anley Hall would be taking part in in the National Care Home Open Day on June 19.
