Waterside care home praised by care regulator
A care home in Peckham has been classed as Good in all areas by regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Staff at Anchor’s Waterside on Sumner Road were celebrating this week after receiving the accolade.
The home, which cares for up to 48 residents, was praised by the CQC in the recent inspection which took place on 10th and 13th May 2019. Care homes are now classed as either outstanding, good, requiring improvement or inadequate.
Home Manager Juliana Ahunanya said everyone at the home was thrilled because they had worked so hard to maintain high standards of care.
She said: “We have worked hard to make Waterside a good care home but to be given such praise from the regulator is wonderful. We are proud of the meals which are made from fresh seasonal ingredients and the high levels of training and support our staff receive.
“We welcome such rigorous inspections and clear ratings so older people and their families can see which homes are the best in the country. We’re so pleased to be classed as a good care home - we’ll be celebrating this success.”
The CQC inspection report, which can be found on the regulator’s website, highlighted the following examples of high standards of care at Waterside: One person told us, "They ask me what I want… they do what I ask." A care worker said, "We give people choices with everything….their meals, what they wear. Everything."
One social care professional commented, "It is a good quality service and they deliver good outcomes for people."
