Fairfield House meets Essential Standards of Care

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Fairfield House has recently received an unannounced inspection by the Care Quality Commission and is pleased to announce that we have achieved compliant status. This means that our services meet essential standards of quality and safety that respect the dignity of seniors and protect their rights. The inspector looked at several areas and found the service at Fairfield House to be a caring, safe, effective, responsive and well led home.

We are very proud of the Team at Fairfield House, they work consistently hard to meet and raise the standards of care for our residents. They are passionate about what they do and this is evident in this report. Some of the comments made in the report include:

  •  “We saw people being treated with respect and consideration and staff took time to engage positively with people.”
  •  “People and staff were asked about their views and this was used to develop ongoing improvements”
  •  “We observed that staff took time to respond to people and interact in a friendly and supportive manner when they passed them or when assistance was being provided.”

At Fairfield House carers put residents at the heart of everything they do. We aim to provide resident-led care focusing on the needs of our residents and their families. Our activities team offer activities which are suitable and of interest to each resident.  Many residents and their families are putting together their life stories, this is aimed at providing bespoke care for each resident bearing in mind past and present. Residents can take part in a wide range of activities, sit back and enjoy the entertainment programme or relax in our beautiful gardens taking in the stunning views over Lyme Bay. We provide residential care, including dementia care. We also offer respite and day care packages in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
