A care home’s commitment to celebrating all faiths helped it secure a ‘Good’ rating in a recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection.

The report found that patients at Sanctuary Supported Living (SSL) in High Worple, which cares for people with learning difficulties, were “listened to and respected”.

Events and opportunities are tailored to the residents’ preferences, taking in a number of cultures and festivals from around the world.

Judy Salami, SSL area service manager, said: “At High Worple, we deliver personalised care and support, tailored to the individual needs of residents.

“It’s been rewarding to see that, as well as the importance of client feedback recognised in the CQC report, through things like our Diwali celebrations and catering options.”

The CQC praised the existence of risk assessments and personal emergency and evacuation plans, as well as access to easy read materials.

It also noted the home’s low staff turnover as a positive in ensuring continuity for all involved there.
